Mikate (At every Congolese party/gathering there will always be mikate on the table)
Looks like a Nigerian party too, puff puff!
Is it the same as a dumpling?
I don’t know. Which type of dumpling are you talking about?
In Jamaica we have friend dumpling which looks a little similar
This is one shape. I was just wondering if its the same, its usually just flour, or cornmeal, baking soda and water.
Ohhhhhh…are they similar to festivals because I had them for the first time on Monday.
I think what people use to make mikate differs from province to province. But the basic ingredients are flour, yeast, sugar and water (+ vanilla). and it’s usually eaten with peanuts or peanut butter. I’ve had savory ones where they have prawns and other seas foods in the middle. Even though I love the sweet ones, the savory ones are to die for.
Yep. Festivals are just dumplings with sugar lol.
OMG that sounds soooo good! I should really try some out or cook some myself! Food. <3333 It’s good to see that somethings are the similar even if we live in different places.
In South African Townships it’s known as Amagwinya
