Oluwombo

Oluwombo or Luwombo is a traditional dish from Uganda. It is both a classic dish of royal dinners and a dish popular throughout Uganda, especially at holiday time. It is often said that oluwombo dates to 1887 when, during the reign of Kabaka Mwanga, the dish was introduced by his chief cook, Kawunta. The basic banana-leaf cooking method has been common across tropical Africa for centuries and is also much used wherever bananas or plantains are grown. (See: Liboké de Viande and Liboké de Poisson.) It can be made with beef, chicken, goat, pork, or mushrooms.

What you do

Plantains cooked in banana leaves (i.e., plantain leaves) are a popular staple dish in Uganda.

Mushrooms and peanuts (without meat) can be cooked together oluwombo style.

Oluwombo can also be made without pre-cooking the meat and sauce before they are wrapped. The steaming time should increased to well over two hours.

Ndizi na Nyama is another plantain and meat recipe.
