Hello loves! This is my first cooking post, we all know that a taste from home is the best! This time I thought one of the most loved dish locally known as the “dikgobe” or “lohata”in Botswana , made with sorghum grains/maize and beans. The secret behind this dish is that the type of beans used greatly influence the taste of the “dikgobe”.
I measured a cup of sorghum grains, and soaked them for an hour. A cup and 1/2 of beans were also soaked for an hour.
I boiled the sorghum grains for 20 minutes before I added the beans.
When the mixture was well done, I chopped some vegetables, lightly stir-fried and flavoured them to my liking for taste.
I then added the vegetables and let the mixture simmer for about 20 minutes .
