Z for Zambia. The culmination of our world tour is here in this southern African, land locked country, Zambia!! I hope this world tour offered a glimpse into the various cuisines of the world.
After cris-crossing the world, lets settle down with a homey kind of a curry which is a staple in Zambia. Apparently, this curry is usually accompanied by a dish called Nshima. It is a corn flour, cooked in water and shaped like torpedos (oval shape) and they form a very important part of their meal. Since I was not sure we could appreciate it, I went ahead and served it with rice and roti!
Stay tuned for a round up of the tour in the next post!
