Sudan sheep and lamb fat recipe.

Around 35% of Sudan's 37 million residents have access to electricity; therefore cooking meals on an open fire is a necessity for most households.

The National dish of Sudan arguably is a Miris, a simple meal made of cassavas, onions, okra and lamb fat for seasoning and flavor usually cooked the traditional way, over an open fire.

Lamb and sheep fats are used in a number of North African, Middle Eastern, and Lebanese dishes but if lamb fat is too adventurous then use pork fatback or beef fat. If you really, really want to stay on the mild side of culinary life then use olive oil instead of lamb fat.

Sudanese meals are eaten around a large, shared dish of meat, vegetable, salad, stews and sauce dishes are placed. Meals are eaten with the right hand always, using flat bread or a stiff porridge known as asida or kisra.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
