Cornmeal or ‘Pule’ is often served with the ‘Saft’. The villagers enjoy dipping bread into it as well. This simple recipe looks like a tomato sauce but it is eaten as a side dish or main meal.

2. Add celery and red pepper and stir for another 2-3 minutes.
3. On a lower heat, add the tomatoes, simmer for 20 minutes. Tomatoes will become soft. Add vegetable bouillon and salt.
