I didn’t grow up eating ndengu (green grams), at least not that I remember. My mother didn’t cook them. I think mostly because she didn’t grow up eating them herself.
I also like to cook the things I remember eating in my mother’s house. Potatoes, nduma, sweet potatoes, matoke, rice, beans, plantain, chicken, beef, goat and the usual vegetables like spinach, mchicha, pumpkin leaves, green-beans, cabbage, etc. Oh! and ugali, how could I forget ugali! The list goes on and on!
