Sadza in Shona is a cooked maize meal that is the staple food in Zimbabwe and other parts of Southern Africa. Sadza is made with finely ground dry maize/corn maize (Mealie-Meal) and water…nothing else.
A meal of sadza includes sadza, a stew with sauce or gravy, and a side dish. If visitors are being served, the stew contains meat. This simple meal is enjoyed 1-2 times per day in Zimbabwe and is simply called “sadza.”
Sadza is typically served on individual plates but traditionally sadza was eaten from a communal bowl, a tradition that is still maintained by some families mainly in the rural areas. It is generally eaten with the right hand without the aid of cutlery; often rolled into a ball before used to scoop up the stew, sauce/gravy, or stewed vegetables. We will show you how, don’t worry!
