Cassava is also known as tapioca which is a rich source of carbohydrates and protein also containing many vitamins. Lumonde is a boiled sweet potato, again a staple and much loved while consumed along with matooke (plantain mash), cassava with chicken stew. Matooke is a plantain, which is grown in African countries and consumed either as chips, fried, boiled and mashed. Matooke is mashed plantain for a complete ugandan meal contains rich source of carbohydrates and potassium. Chicken stew and Rice are last but not least in our menu as
