"More mummy." "Ummm, yummy!" My two year old exclaimed as he requested more of the simmered lamb and rice dish featured in this video which I discovered three nights ago will scrolling through Facebook. Nnedi Okarafor, author of Black Panther: Long Live the King, shares what the people of Wakanda would eat if it were a real nation.
I dismissed the video recipe, and prepared to return to Facebook when I noticed huge chunks of lamb simmering in ghee. I abhor Facebook recipes, and scoff at people who share Tasty videos, but this was LAMB. I love lamb, my family loves lamb, and this was lamb cooked in ghee and simmered in pungent spices and served over a savory rice. I was hooked and determined to make this dish.
I have dubbed the unnamed dish Wakanda Rice, and everyone in the household, even the two year old requested more. I can only imagine that Baby - led weaning is the norm in Wakanda, so why not make this super delicious dish which can be enjoyed by everyone in the family.
