OK! Maybe not all (taro root is missing), but they’re all favourites. Matoke, potatoes, sweet potatoes and butternut! Some people think this is horrible but I love it! Just imagine, the matoke and potatoes getting hit with notes of sweet potato and creamy butternut (^_^)
So this is a before picture, of all the above in the pot before I cooked. Unfortunately I didn’t get a good after photo so this will have to do. Maybe next time. The ratio is 3:2:2:1 (matoke, potatoes, sweet potatoes, butternut respectively).
2 red onions chopped
1 large carrot grated
2 tomatoes chopped
2 table spoons cooking oil
salt to taste
Sprinkle in all the additional ingredients over the mix in the pot. Add water till it’s almost level (about 1 or 2 cm less than the contents). Cover the pot (but not completely, let the cover sit on the side a bit leaving an opening). Bring to a boil then reduce to medium heat. Check it and stir once in a while till everything is cooked and the water reduces leaving only a pulpy sauce. If the water dries out before everything is cooked you can add more.
I like this dish as is so I don’t add anything else to it. But you can serve it with a side of veggies. I like the the left overs with a plain omlete in the morning (^_^)
Chunky, hearty, filling. Highly recommended before a construction job.

Love this. I make it with ginger and use pumpkin kienyeji not butternut. But ditto on the love for sweet potatoes and Neumann.
Oops, meant nduma.
