MATOBOSHA/VIPOPOO VYA NGANO
Matobosha(in Kenya) is a Swahili delicacy which is basically a cooked (wheat flour) dough in a creamy coconut sauce. Usually reserved for special occasions and celebration due to the tedious work involved, but you can cook it any day as you wish! Usually served as a dessert. A similar dish in neighbouring Tanzania is Vipopoo (vitobosho) (but cooked with rice or cassava flour).

OPTIONAL/ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS IN THE SAUCE;
MAKING THE DOUGH:
Traditionally the dough is made with just 2 ingredients, flour and water. I like the addition of nutmeg, cardamom, sugar and salt to the flour so as give the cooked dough a fragrant bite when eaten. This is my personal opinion, its optional. Omit if you want to make it the traditional way.

1)When assembling the dough with the sauce, remember the flour dough is already cooked, What you are doing is ensuring the sauce is cooked and the dough is mixed well with the sauce.
2) You can also add custard powder to enhance the flavor- though this is a modern variation!
