Choroko Sauce is a traditional Ugandan recipe for a classic vegetarian stew of mung beans and potatoes cooked in red palm oil. Can be served with Mandazi recipe#456757.
Prep time does not include soaking time.
Cover the beans with water and soak overnight. The next day drain and rinse the beans. Cover with water in a pot and allow to simmer until tender(about 90minutes). Add more water if needed.
Drain the beans and mash with a fork.
Meanwhile fry the onions and garlic in the oil for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes and fry for 5 minutes. Add this fried mixture to the beans, fold to mix in and season with salt and black pepper. Place in a pan with the 120ml water and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for about 15 minutes then serve over rice or with Mandazi.
