"Squid with stiff porridge is delicious food"

Translation:Ngisi na ugali ni chakula kitamu

September 4, 2018



-tamu ("sweet; of pleasing taste") comes from Arabic طَعْم‎ (ṭaʿm, “tasty”), of the same root that مَطْعَم‎ (maṭʿam, “restaurant”) and طَعَام‎ (ṭaʿām, “food”)


Never heard of stiff porridge. Turns out it's just what it sounds like - porridge made with extra flour or meal to make it thicker.
