Ugali, also known as Sadza, is a type of maize meal porridge made in Africa. It is also known as Nshima, Fufu and Pap in different parts of the continent. Here are some traditional utensils used in cooking Ugali: 1. Cooking Pot (Sufuria): Traditionally made of clay, but modern ones are made of metal. They come in different sizes depending on the quantity of ugali to be cooked. 2. Flat Wooden Spoon (Mwiko): These are used to stir the Ugali as it cooks to prevent it from forming lumps. 3. Mortar and Pestle (Kibuyu na Mwiko): These are used to grind the maize into flour before it's used to cook Ugali. In modern times, a maize mill is often used instead. 4. Winnowing Basket (Tunga): Used to separate the maize grains from the hulls before grinding. 5. Sieve (Kyondo): Used to remove any coarse grains after milling the maize into flour. 6. Wooden Plates (Vibandaski): Once cooked, the Ugali is traditionally served on these wooden plates. 7. Calabashes: Traditionally, water was fetched and stored in these gourd-like containers, and was used in the preparation of Ugali. 8. Firewood Stove (Jiko): Traditionally Ugali would be cooked over an open fire. The modern stove has built upon this design but the essence remains the same. 9. Grinding Stone (Jembe): If a mortar and pestle are not available, a grinding stone can be used to mill the maize. 10. Storage Bins (Vitega): These are used to store the maize grains before they are processed into flour. Some of these tools may be replaced or supplemented by more modern kitchen tools depending on the setting and personal preferences. But the traditional process of cooking ugali adds a unique cultural touch that enhances the authenticity and enjoyment of the meal.
