Directions:
Boil water in a saucepan. Make a paste using some of the meal with the cup of cold water. Add the paste to hot water. Stir with a wooden spoon until thickened like porridge. Cover the saucepan and simmer for about 15 minutes. Lower the heat a little. Remove the lid and gradually add corn meal, stirring constantly and flattening any lumps that may form. Continue to add meal and stir until nshima thickens to the desired consistency. Cover and reduce heat to very low. Leave for a few minutes to allow further cooking. Stir the nshima once again and serve when slightly set. Cover to keep it warm.

Personal Notes:
Alex liked this porridge for breakfast, thinned with a bit of milk or water with sugar added. It can be served as is with fish, meat, beans or vegetables for other meals. On our safari, this was cooked over a campfire.
