    I need a good Ugandan recipe to cook and share with one of my classes. Preferably a snack-like food, or anything easy to share. THANKS!

    I tried out this recipe, but when the Kashata sets it doesn’t hold together.
    Is there something more that should be done to ensure that the grated coconut sticks together?

    I have heard my friend talk about a combination of Coconut and Chicken to make some kind of sweet supper…

    Does anyone know any Recipes I can make with those two Ingredients?

    (Not just those others..Don’t matter what it is I can go buy the others)

    (But the main Ingredients I want in it are Coconut and Chicken)
