- 1 cup chibage chakafushwa (boiled and dried maize corn)
- 1 cup shelled ground nuts
- 1 tsp salt
This has to be my favorite version of mutakura. Am not really a fan of nyimo (round-nuts) and nyemba (cow-peas) which are usually the ingredients for the other mutakura versions. This is a pretty straight forward recipe since your chibage (maize corn) has already been pre-cooked you put this in to the pot first and then followed by your ground nuts. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. You can see my version 1 of mutakura here.
Note I like my peanuts slightly on the chewy/crunchy side. So if they don’t taste done to you after the two hours of cooking you are free to add more water until they are as done as you want them to be.
- Put chibage in pot, rinse it a little. Add water and cover and bring it to the boil for 40 minutes
- After 40 minutes add your shelled groundnuts, salt and more water. Partly cover and cook for 1 hr 20 minutes (80minutes) adding more water as it gets finished in-between.
- After 80min of boiling your mutakura is ready.
