Matooke the Staple food of East Africa.

When it comes to food for the people of central Eastern Africa, it is not considered a complete meal if it’s not served with a portion of Matooke!

Commonly consumed in the central and western parts of Uganda, Northern Tanzania and Rwanda. In Uganda it’s generally known as matooke,ebitoke in northern Tanzania and Igitiko for the people of Rwanda.It’s the staple food that many people from those regions.Aperson can feed on it throughout the year without being fed up with it.

The fruit is harvested green, carefully peeled, and then cooked and often mashed or pounded into a meal. In Uganda and Rwanda, the fruit is steam-cooked, and the mashed meal is considered a national dish in both countries.

Their leaves are also darker green and dull, a difference more apparent when comparing them side by side with other banana cultivars from a distance

Cooking bananas have long been and still are a common staple crop around the Lake Victoria area of Uganda, and in the West and Kilimanjaro regions of Tanzania.

Banana production and consumption are deeply embedded in East African culture, where some varieties have cultural roles among the farming communities.In most cases, men manage the banana plantations for cash while women manage those used directly for household food. However, even in the same plantation, individual bunches may be claimed by men for sale or by women for direct food use.
