Mabela/Sorghum porridge or sadza remapfunde  is very healthy and nutritious.  It is loaded with vitamins which our bodies need as well as other beneficial minerals such as calcium and phosphorus among others. These nutrients, vitamins and minerals all play different but important roles in our bodies. Mabela may, however,  need a little bit of acquiring the taste for some. It’s very easy to prepare, no rocket science to it at all 😀
