The Kikuyu and Meru people both lay claim to this recipe.
1 1/2 cups ripe maize/corn (not dried)
1/2 to 3/4 cup shelled peas
3 medium potatoes
2 Tbsp butter
Place maize and peas in a pan with water and boil until almost soft. It should take about 1 hour, depending on the maize and peas. Add the potatoes and cook them until they readily mash. Add water as it is needed. When the mixture is soft mash it with a fork. Add salt, pepper, and the butter. Mix it and serve.
