#sadza fritters… I am still perfecting the recipe, they needed a bit more seasoning. Will finally have an alternative recipe for what we call #chimunya in Zimbabwe. Left over sadza. Happy Easter y’all. #zimbabwe #sadza #testing #fritters #experimenting #easter

Fish with deep fried onions.. Those onions were so tasty.. Deep fried together with the fish.

Can’t wait to see Half Of A Yellow Sun. I love Chimamanda’s writing, have read all her books, have seen her at writers events here in London and have been an avid follower before the Beyoncé song… #africanart #halfofayellowsun #chimamandangoziadichie #inspiringwoman #hopemovielivesuptothebook #africanwriting

Last piece of my #malvapudding. It was delish!!

This filter shows how the okra has still got the green vibrant color.
So you boil a little water (enough to just cover the rest of the ingredients - eyeball it ) Once water has boiled add the onion, okra , chilli and a bit of tomato if you wish.

Add about 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda, this helps break the okra down and also keep its colour.

Add salt and keep stirring to keep it from spilling out.

Cook for another 5 minutes or so - remove from hear to check if the okra has broken down into slightly smaller pieces.

Serve with sadza/pounded yam etc and eat whilst still hot.
