Zambians call their stiff cornmeal-mush staple Nshima.
Dampen cornmeal with 1 cup of cold water. Bring 2½ cups water to a boil, add salt.
Stir in cornmeal and cook over a moderately high heat, stirring constantly until thick.
Continue cooking about 5 minutes. Add more boiling water, a little at a time, until of desired thickness.
The mixture should be quite stiff and hold its shape when turned out of the pan.
In Africa, each diner tears off walnut-sized balls of Nshima and dips it into the stew or sauce.
Serves 6 - 8.
