Malawi Relish Greens (Ndiwo) Recipe
A common dish in Malawi is Ndiwo, a relish usually made with leafy greens, tomatoes and onions. It is scooped up with nsima, a porridge made with maize.
In Malawi, they use nsima to scoop up this relish which is usually made with leafy greens, tomatoes and onions. I found this recipe on the Friends of Malawi website. There are a variety of greens you can use, including cassava leaves, sweet potato leaves, pumpkin leaves or cabbage. I chose to use kale for my dish. I also wanted to use dried fish since dried fish and tomatoes are William’s favorite, but I could only find dried shrimp. The taste was a little overpowering and I think this would taste better without it.
