by Anaya Rajpoot

NASHIMA is a very important dish in Zambia. This ingredient is made from food, which is made from corn. It is made by mixing only 2 ingredients, put it in hot water and stir until tender. Today we are learning how to prepare food in Zambia using Nashima.

How to eat Nashmima by making a ball with your hands, push it in the middle to make a spoon shape then you combine the ingredients and eat.

Try to make your container as thin as possible, we like to stick to it because it makes the plate look good. Whenever you add Coke to your liking, some people will like Crouching Killing while others will like Black Picks Well Coke.

Add the flour until you have the consistency of a loose cake (depending on whether you already have the flour or not). Unfortunately, this can be bypassed-but not unless you’re a techie who knows what he’s doing. Some people like very soft porridge, while others like very hard porridge. If you use per-cooked corn, cook it for about 15 minutes. If you use raw flour, the time will be 45 minutes to an hour.
