EAST AFRICAN SAMP IN COCONUT MILK/BROKEN MAIZE RICE IN COCONUT MILK/WALI WA BURU/MAKANDE MEUPE
Stamp is eaten in most parts of Africa and hence, each has its own variation and name. In East African, it is known as 'wali wa mahindi' which simply means Maize rice. It is cooked using broken maize (samp). The broken maize particles can differ (big or medium or small) depending on the local mill. The locals cook it similar to Coconut rice, the only difference being the use of the broken maize/Samp instead of rice (hence known as wali wa mahindi or wali wa buru in kibajuni (buru being the broken maize)). This meal sometimes appears on the menu because of economical issues. In East Africa, rice is more expensive than maize so this dish is usually an 'on the budget meal'. However, once you get accustomed to the flavour, you will treat this meal like a delicacy!
