Ful Sudani and Mush
Ful Sudani is a traditional treat from Sudan. Follow the instructions below to make the treat.
Stir together ½ cup of sugar and 3 egg whites in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until a path remains when the spoon is drawn through the mixture — about 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat. Stir in 1 tsp. of vanilla and 1 cup of chopped peanuts. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a well-greased, foil-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove promptly from the foil.
The government of Sudan drops bombs on the Nuba Mountain region of their country, where many Christians live. Many of the people have fled to refugee camps to escape the fighting.
People in the area are very poor. One of their foods is somewhat like cornmeal mush. If you want to make something like their mush, mix ¾ cup of flour (or cornmeal) with 1 cup of milk. Boil 1 cup of water, and slowly add the flour mixture to it, stirring constantly as you reduce the heat to low.
Continue stirring, and add an additional ½ cup of flour or cornmeal. Stir until smooth and until the thick dough begins to stick together. Cool the dough. Pull off a lump of the dough, make a dent in it with your thumb, and use it to scoop up stews or sauces, then eat it.
