So that’s Tricia’s (pictured) tasty ndengu stew recipe – I hope you’ll get to try it out. What will you accompany the ndengu stew with?

In my house, one of the favorite accompaniment for ndengu stew is chapatis. We all love that combination. Rice also is a good accompaniment.

I know there are some people who love having ndengu with ugali, and I recently discovered that some people love their ndengu with spaghetti! 😮 Ok to be honest I don’t know about that… How about in your home? What’s the favorite ndengu accompaniment?
