In our most recent takeover, Mariia of Mariia’s Kitchen shared with us one of her favourite Sudanese dishes: Kuindiong! Although based in Sydney, Australia, Mariia is of Sudanese heritage and a vibrant champion of its cuisine and culture, as clearly seen in her takeover of the BLACK FOODIE page.
Mariia showed us how to make Kuindiong, a traditional dessert typically prepared by the Dinka people of South Sudan, the world’s smallest nation.
As shown in the takeover, this dish is pretty simple to make and only consists of a handful of ingredients: yogurt, milk, semolina, butter, and sugar.
The recipe does call for a solid arm as it involves a lot of stirring! But it’ll be worth it. You’ll end up with a deliciously sweet and oh so smooth mixture very much resembling pudding!
Served with a few spoonsful of Miok, a crumble-like topping made from butter and sugar, this dish is truly the sweetest introduction to Sudanese cuisine.
