To prepare ting paste, take a quantity of mabele and mix it with an equal quantity of warm water, cover and leave to ferment for at least 2 days.


2 litres water

1 litre fermented ting paste


Bring water to the boil in a large pot. Pour in half the ting paste and stir constantly to avoid lumps. When the paste is smooth, cover the pot and leave to cook slowly for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the rest of the paste. Cook for a further 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately with a meat stew and morogo (wild leaves).
