"Angalikula ugali angalikuwa na afya nzuri"

Translation:If he had eaten stiff porridge, he would have been in good health

June 4, 2018



"Ugali" in English is "ugali" (and "champagne" in English is "champagne").


he would have had good health?


Yep, or "... been in good health" as well.


So im curious as to what this "stiff porridge" is, that seems to have such great powers! Is it wheat, teff, rice, oats, or what??? I know in Nigeria they make up a pretty stiff cream-of-wheat type stuff (farina), called fu-fu. Is it the same thing, or something different? Cuz farina is not really that healthy, it is pure carbs.


Cornmeal porridge. If you do a Google search for "ugali" you can even get the recipe.
