Mkate wa Nazi (3)
Mkate wa nazi
1 cup Masa flour (pre-cooked corn flour)
1 cup shredded coconut
1 and a 1/4 cup water
1 small diced onion
Salt..to suit your taste
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
Mix all the ingredients together except the water.
When everything is mixed well, add the water and continue mixing the ingredients until they are all well mixed..
You can either cook them on a frying pan or a griddle.
I used a griddle..Turn your griddle on medium high heat and then brush some vegetable oil, just to grease it.
Then wet your hands and scoop some of the mixture and shape it into a disc (desired thickness) or a triangle..You can make them any size or any thickness you want.
Now place the shaped mixture on the griddle and repeat shaping the remaining mixture and placing them o the griddle. Let one side cook before flipping the mikate to the other side.
When one side is cooked, flip the mikate to the other side, so that the other side cooks as well. You can keep flipping them until they are fully cooked.
The mikate are ready when they are evenly well cooked. You can taste one to see if the inside is cooked.
Repeat with the remaining mixture..
