Sometimes I feel I use coconut milk and/or cream in almost everything I cook- sweet or savory. But can you really blame me? LOL. Coconut milk goes with nearly everything, upgrades the taste of everything, adds complexity and depth to everything. And because of that, I will always grab a packet for myself when I am in the supermarket. I told you a few months back when I was making this other ndengu recipe, that I initially intended to cook it with coconut milk, only to discover I never had some! Tragic! The recipe still worked out then, but here we are now with my turmeric and coconut milk ndengu!
Ndengu, or as our friends at the coast refer to as pojo, and what in English are mung beans or green grams, are such excellent absorbents of flavor and packed with a ton of health benefits! Amplifying all that inherent goodness is truly all you need and deserve to make your meal times an experience.
Ladies, have you ever cheated on your eyebrows guy and ended up with thunder bolts on your face that you have to put up with until the hair grows back? Or guys, those times you cheat on your barber and end up with a hairline that has been receeded all the way to 1678? Yup! We have all experienced such moments! I am one person who is loyal to my people and my products. But sometimes, I decide I know better and such decisions I always regret. Always! Yet I never learn! I wanted to cook these ndengu with coconut milk, but I decided to buy a different brand, one that I have never used. All I know is, coconut milk does not look like gelatin. Moral of the story is, do not cheat on what has been true to you for years :DDDD. I threw out that can and I had to think fast how to cook the ndengu in a non-basic now that one key ingredient was out. That incident may have been a blessing in disguise because the marvelous beauty that resulted was worth the hustle.
