"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

I made ugali and chili last night, and I thought that I would share this super easy recipe. 

I learned how to make it from Josiah's parents, who were missionaries in Africa for almost 3 years.  It is a very simple, yet filling, bread-type food.  (Sorry to anyone who is allergic to wheat.  I don't know if you can use other types of flour with this recipe, but you could try.)  There are other recipes out there, but this is the one that I used.

2 cups water
2 cups whole wheat flour

Boil the water.  Add the flour, keep the heat up.  Stir until the flour is completely incorporated (your arm will get a workout).  The ugali will be very sticky, so it might be best to use a non-stick pan and spoon to stir.  After the flour is incorporated, which may take a few minutes, depending on how large of a batch you make, put the ugali onto a plate and serve.  You can form it into a nicer structure if you wish, ours looked like a brain.  Be careful, it will be hot!!

It is a really easy recipe and I think it goes best with chili because ugali is a very bland food.  We like to tear it apart into small pieces and dip it in the chili.  And of course our chili has to have cheese in it (because it's a dairy product)  Enjoy!
