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.
