Chop leaves of 1 bunch (with the stalks), lightly fry the stalks with one chopped onion. 2 chopped tomatoes, curry powder, salt and pepper, add the leaves and cook till tender. Stir in one tablespoon of peanut butter and add chopped salted peanuts if desired.

The Morogo is then served with the pap. We make small balls of pap with our hands and dip it into the morogo or a tomato and onion relish.

The dish is commonly served with any bbq meat like ribs, t-bone steak, chuck steak or chicken.
Thank you. Sounds interesting.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
