Githeri

Githeri is a basic maize (corn) and beans stew, traditional among the Kikuyu people of Kenya. Not only are these two eaten together, they are often intercropped (grown together) in the same fields. At its simplest, githeri is just maize and beans. Sometimes potatoes, greens (kale or similar), or meat are added. See also: Irio.
