Ntungo a Ganda name for Sesame seeds is a widely used ingredient in the making of some of Uganda’s tastiest local dishes. It is true that you cannot discuss Uganda without talking about its tasty and or healthy local food. Ntungo is used in the making of roast ground nut paste, the most consumed dish in Buganda and Uganda at large.
Growing up, Eva and Mabel (directors) had the paste for most of their meals because of its taste and affordability. We have grown to love the paste and prepare it in our homes often. It is therefore from this love of this particular dish that we want showcase our local cuisine with Ntungo as our focus. Ntungo can also be consumed as a tasty snack and is widely loved by children.
