|3,5 cup||maize meal|
|salt to taste|
Boil water in a large pot. Add salt and sprinkle the maize meal into the pot.
Stir with a fork to create a crumbly texture. Cover and let simmer until cooked through (approximately 30 minutes).
Serve with amasi curds. Mix the sour curds and the dry maize meal in each individual portion.
Amasi are traditionally made by fermenting unpasteurized milk in a calabash until it separates into curds and whey. The time this takes will depend on the weather conditions. In countries where no amasi is available buttermilk or kefir may be used as a substitute.
Make the recipe from scratch and grind your own maize meal using the Ankarsrum Assistent Original’s flour and coffee grinder.
