SAIDA MIA ready-to-cook sauces are for quick and easy recipes that take you on a culinary adventure around the fabulous flavours of Africa.
This Somali Vegetable Hotpot is packed with goodness and is super tasty. You literally chuck everything into one pot and cook, making it easy and quick too.
Maraq sauces are cooked extensively across Somalia and my SAIDA MIA Maraq-style Sauce is inspired by the sweet and sour styles. It is made from a traditional spice blend, green peppers, mango, dates and a little tamarind to give the sourness.
Serve this quick and easy vegetable hotpot with wholemeal or white rice, or a flatbread.
All SAIDA MIA sauces and pastes have a gentle medium heat. Add fresh or powdered chilli to spice them up to your liking.
