This South Sudanese red rice recipe is a specialty dish that is particular to a tribe in Southern Sudan. It looks similar to large couscous, but it is made from red rice flour.
- 2 kilogrammes of red rice flour.
- 2 tablespoons of oil.
- 2 cups red rice flour crumbs.
Fermenting time overnight.
Place ½ cup flour in a large bowl. Add 1.5 litres water and mix to form a very thick paste. Cover with a tea towel and stand overnight at room temperature to ferment.
Add remaining flour to paste and, using your hands, gather handfuls and rub in flour for 20 minutes or until mixture resembles crumbs.
Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat, add 2 cups red rice flour crumbs and cook for 3 minutes or until it darkens slightly in colour. Add 80 millilitres of water, or more if necessary, until the entire mixture is soaked. Cook for a further 2 minutes or until tender. Transfer to a bowl and repeat with more oil and remaining red rice flour crumbs. Serve with stew, topped with natural yoghurt.
