  1. Katogo ranks first in the list of the best foods in Uganda with recipe. It is a typical Ugandan delicacy eaten during breakfast. Katogo was once considered a poor man's diet because it was made with beans and diced cassava (or Yuca, as many people outside the African continent call it). However, as time passed and with more variety of foods available, even the wealthy boasted about liking the dinner. The substitution of cassava for maize is a considerable improvement in the manufacture of Katogo. Traditionally, most Africans consume cassava only after it has been fermented and processed in different ways. Its stringy quality makes it unsuitable for some forms of blended preparation.


    Ugandans eventually substituted cassava with matooke in Katogo. As more people became aware of the meal, different variations evolved. Sauces and organ meats were introduced to improve the taste of the food. Creativity produces results. Katogo is now commonly consumed in restaurants and in most regions of the world. Starving? Katogo never fails to impress! You're aware that you'll be working hard all day and may have less time to eat? Katogo, eat! Your body will go to work effortlessly and will just ask for water during the day. It's why the Yorubas (an African tribe in modern-day Nigeria and parts of the Republic of Benin) call it Kankere, which is also the term for bricks!

  4. The Ugandan egg roll is not to be confused with the popular and well-known Chinese egg roll, which originated in China. The African egg roll, as it is commonly known, is made up of a boiled egg and various seasonings wrapped around the egg. The boiled egg in Uganda is wrapped around a mass of mashed Irish and deep-fried, whereas the boiled egg in Nigeria is wrapped around a mass of dough and deep-fried. This recipe teaches us how to create Ugandan Egg Rolls.


    In Uganda, egg rolls can be purchased from snack bars and some restaurants. Restaurants typically serve them for breakfast, although snack bars serve them at any time of day. An egg roll in Uganda costs between 1,000 and 2,000 Uganda shillings, depending on where you get it, and there are two things to keep in mind when preparing ugandan egg rolls: Deep-frying egg rolls at medium heat is recommended. This is due to the fact that Ugandan egg rolls are wrapped around a mound of Irish. Cooking the egg rolls on a high heat prevents them from cooking on the inside. For best results when frying, the egg rolls should be completely submerged in the oil.


    Ingredients

    • 6 medium-sized potatoes, 5 large eggs, 1 Cup of Bread crumbs, 1 Tsp black pepper, 1 Tsp. Curry powder, 1 Tablespoon of Margarine, Salt to taste, Vegetable Oil for frying

    Instructions

    • To prepare hard boiled eggs, bring water in a pot to a rolling boil. Add 6 eggs and reduce the flame to medium. After

    • Once the eggs are cool, peel and set aside.
    • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and allow to cook until the potatoes are fork tender.
    • Once cool, peel the potatoes.
    • Mash the potatoes until fine and smooth.
    • Add the seasonings: turmeric, cumin, chili and salt to the mashed potatoes and mix well.
    • Add the finely diced onion and cilantro/parsley and mix well.
    • Beat the 1 egg and set aside in a bowl
    • In another bowl, place the breadcrumbs
    • Take a scoop of the spiced mashed potato and make a patty. Take a boiled egg and wrap the mashed potato around it such that the boiled egg is entirely covered and encased in the spiced mashed potato.
    • Dip the mashed potato wrapped egg in the beaten egg and then coat with the breadcrumbs. Repeat with all 6 eggs.

Plantains are occasionally peeled and steamed before being mashed and served with your choice of sauce. Matooke is delicious when fried with tomatoes and onions.

  6. Chicken-nut is a unique Ugandan cuisine that you must try if you want a heartfelt and enjoyable supper. It is usually found in high-end restaurants because it is too pricey for the average person to enjoy. These satay chicken skewers might taste like shoe leather. And if they did, that's fine. Because this peanut-lime sauce will enhance the flavor of everything.


    But don't be concerned. It has nothing to do with shoe leather. Promise. Instead, it's golden-brown chicken bits with just the right amount of charred, smokey flavor. With the help of a simple coconut milk marinade and cupboard spices, the marinade elevates the chicken to the next level of flavor. In a stew pot, brown onions, chicken stock, chunks of chicken, spices, and peanut buttercream. After preparation, chicken-nut is typically eaten with rice, posho (Ugali), or matooke, providing a sense of well-being.


    Ingredients

    • 2 tbs oil, 1 onion cut into wedges, 2 tsp garlic crushed fresh, 2 tsp curry powder, 600 g chicken fillets cut into strips, 2 tbs honey, 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter, 1/2 cup Massel Chicken Style Liquid Stock

    Instructions

    • If you don’t have cooked jasmine rice on hand, begin cooking your rice first so it will be ready by the time the chicken and sauce are complete. To begin the sauce, mince the garlic and then peel and grate the ginger into a large skillet or pot. Saute both in the vegetable oil over medium heat for about 2 minutes or until they are soft and fragrant.
    • Cut the chicken into small pieces (about one inch across). Add them to your skillet or pot. Saute until lightly browned and cooked through (about 10 minutes).
    • Turn the heat down to low and add the coconut milk and peanut butter. Stir gently to combine the two and dissolve any browned bits off of the bottom of the pan. Once the sauce is relatively smooth, add the soy sauce, brown sugar, sriracha, and juice from half of the lime. Stir to combine and heat through (about ten minutes).
    • Pull the cilantro leaves from their stems and roughly chop. Scoop about one cup of jasmine rice into the bottom of each bowl and then top with the chicken and sauce (about 3/4 cup). Sprinkle the fresh cilantro over top and enjoy!

  7. Oluwombo, sometimes known as luwombo, is a typical Ugandan cuisine. It is both a royal and a reasonably common dish, particularly around the holidays. It is reported to have been invented in 1887 by Kabaka Mwanga's personal chef, who governed the kingdom of Buganda at the end of the nineteenth century.


    The recipe combines meat or chicken with vegetables like as potatoes and carrots, as well as ground nuts wrapped in banana leaves and cooked to perfection with just the proper amount of salt, oil, and spices. It is regarded a wonderful dish for a variety of reasons, including the manner it is presented like a gift wrapped in leaves. Smoked fish is added to the beef/chicken in some variants. People aged 35 and up prefer Luwombo to fast food, which is reserved for the young, but what is the advantage of this steamed cuisine on a banana leaf?

    The dish is simply cooked with banana leaf sheathing and the steaming generates a delightful aroma that is exclusive to just luwombo. People, especially the alcoholics who fear the effects of too much alcohol, run to the luwombo dishes to get the full nutrients, which they hope counteracts the alcohol action on their internal organs and cures the nostalgic feeling.


    Ingredients

    • 14 banana leaves, 1 medium onion, chopped, 1 ½ liters (6 ¼ cups) water, ½ chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces, 1 carrot, grated, 1 tomato, grated, 1 clove garlic, 1 piece ginger, ½ teaspoon Royco seasoning (available on Amazon),½ teaspoon salt

    Instructions

    • Brown the meat in an oiled frying pan, do this in batches so as not to crown the pan, then remove and set aside.
    • Add a couple of tablespoons of oil to the same pan then add the onion slices and saute for 10 to 15 minutes to lightly caramelize them, then add the mushrooms and cook for 5 more minutes. Next add the tomatoes, chicken stock cube, salt, pepper, peanuts and the (optional) smoked fish. If necessary add a little water to form a smooth sauce. Cook to heat through and thicken up just a bit.
    • Plunge the banana leaves in boiling water to soften them, remove the mid-rib and cut the ends off the leaves to form rectangles. If you buy packed banana leaves, most brands (like Goya) have already removed the mid rib for you. Place a portion of meat and some of the tomato-onion sauce (and smoked meat or fish, if desired) in the center of a leaf. Then add two or three chunks of peeled plantain.
    • Fold the leaf from the sides then wrap from the ends to make at least a double layer. Tie into a package with oven-proof string then repeat until all the mixture is used up.
    • Place a wire rack or trivet in the bottom of a large casserole dish then add water to the bottom of the trivet. Place the meat packages on top of the trivet and cover the dish. Bring to a boil and steam the packets for an hour.
    • Remove the packets from the pot and serve.

  8. If you know anything about Ugandan cuisine, you've probably heard about Luwombo. It's a popular and special meal in Buganda, and mother only made it on holidays like Christmas and Easter. "Luwombo Ground Beef?" Luwombo, there is no such thing as minced/ground beef!" Guess what, there is now. Why, you might ask? Because, well, why not? Simply because it has always been whole meat chunks does not preclude it from being minced meat.


    The sole difference between this and the other is that the g-nut paste is mixed with mushrooms and cooked in banana leaves to form the mushroom g-nut luwombo. To make the leaves pliable, they would need to be wilted in the sun for a couple of hours before being surgically reduced from the center rib of each leaf. The leaves would then be cured by mildly heating them on a charcoal stove before carefully folding and concealing them in a safe area where children would not be able to get them until the next day.


    Ingredients

    • 300gm Ground beef, 200gm Minced G-nuts, 100gm Mushrooms, 2 cloves garlic, minced, Salt and Black pepper to taste, 2 beef stock cubes, 1 small carrot, diced, Bell pepper, diced, 1 tbsp. Powdered ginger, 1 tsp. Paprika, 2 medium sized onions, diced, 1 Cured Luwombo leaf with its fastening rope\

    Instruction

    • Boil the g-nuts with the beef stock with 1/3 of the onions and salt for 10-15 minutes. Ensure you’ve put enough water they’ll need to get ready, bearing in mind that you won’t add any at any moment. Also remember the thicker the better.
    • Meanwhile, season the minced meat with salt and pepper before searing in a mildly oiled wok with garlic, ginger and another 1/3 of the onions. 5-10 minutes.
    • Carefully place the Luwombo leaf in a big bowl or saucepan and empty the g-nuts into it, add the beef and the remaining ingredients.
    • Delicately wrap the leaf, ensuring that there is no leakage before tying it up with the banana fiber strap.
    • Place in the prepared steaming saucepan and cover for maximum steam retention like you would if you were steaming matooke and cook for 1-2 hours before serving.
    • Enjoy your Luwombo with matooke, rice, or whatever dry food you want to feast on.
