Black History Month - Somali Kimis
Kimis were the order of the day today with Mukhtar's mum coming in to share her family recipe and make them with our children. Kimis are a kind of Somali chapati (sabaayad).
As often happens when our families come in to volunteer their time in the nursery, children excitedly gathered, awaiting the big reveal! They helped Sara to measure out the flour, oil and water and spent a long time kneading the mixture. Most children sustained concentration for the entire process, including frying them (there were more than 20 kimis). Many, many more children then joined to share the kimis across the morning. Some were also enjoyed at lunch and then the remainder in the afternoon.
The recipe will follow below so you can make them at home with your family and friends.
