This recipe was featured on week 44 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Burundi is my 44th stop. Unless otherwise noted, my Travel by Stove recipes are taken from authentic or traditional sources, and this recipe has been posted without any alternations or additions to the ingredients. Burundi is an African nation where meat is not abundant, and this is one of the ways that a small amount of meat can be stretched to make a filling meal.
