This is my first githeri! I’ve eaten it numerous times before but I’ve never made it.
I asked some friends how to make it, one put it this way: “It’s one of those dishes that even chefs easily mess up because they’re used to complicated fancy combinations and can’t resist the urge to add something! Onions, tomatoes, beans and maize. Keep it simple!”
I couldn’t resist. I made mine with a bit of garlic (^_^) But I don’t think it changed the dish much.
Do these chapos have garlic?
“No! But the githeri does.”
Why didn’t you put any in the chapos? The garlic ones are better!”
“Would have taken too long to make them, we’d be eating really late!”
You know githeri is served alone, not with chapos,…
“I thought they would go well together.”
[after a couple of bites] Hmmm, this is nice! Umetoboa!
I guess He really liked those garlic chapos!
