Tired of making your sukumawiki the same way from January to December? Here is a different way to make everyone asking for more.
The first bite took me by surprise, the sukumawiki was crunchy and the coconut gave it knock back taste, (not sure how to describe it) but I loved it.
Try it with ugali, add some extra vegetables like coloured peppers when frying.
? 2 tablespoon coconut oil
? 2 eggs, beaten
? 3 cloves garlic, minced
? ¾ cup spring onions, chopped
? 1 bunch sukumawiki, (not too big), rib removed, leaves finely shredded
? Salt and pepper to taste
? ¾ cup unsweetened coconut flakes, fresh or store bought
? 2 cups brown rice, cooked and chilled
? 2 teaspoons soy sauce
? 2 teaspoons chilli garlic sauce (available in major supermarkets)
? 1 lime
? Handful dhania for garnishing
Heat a drop or two of oil in a large, non-stick deep frying pan or wok, pour in the beaten egg and stir to make lightly set scrambled eggs. Remove and set aside in a bowl.
In the same pan/wok, add some oil, add garlic, spring onions. Fry for a minute or two or until soft (not burnt). Add sukumawiki with a big pinch of salt. Cook until the vegetables are wilted and tender. Once cooked, transfer to the bowl with eggs.
In the same pan/wok, add oil, once hot (not to hot) add coconut flakes, stirring occasionally. Cook until flakes are lightly golden brown. Add the rice to the flakes, combine stirring occasionally until rice is hot should take about 3-4 minutes.
Now add the contents in the bowl earlier set aside, soy sauce, salt to taste, chilli garlic sauce and juice from half the lime, stir all to combine then set aside.
Garnish with lime wedges and dhania.
