While staying with us, our friend Gerson, from Namibia talked about having this at every meal. Needless to say, while he was here in the United States he put on a pound or two. I really miss him!This recipe is an adaptation of an African staple food, served at every meal to help stretch the meats and vegetables.In Namibia, this dish could also be prepared with cassava. You can make this with water instead of milk, or you can try substituting equal parts tapioca flour for the corn meal.
