Githeri (Gĩtheri) is a Kenyan traditional meal of maize and kidney beans. It is a staple dish in the Central Province, Kenya, but it is also eaten in other parts of the country. It is easy to access because maize and beans are readily available in these areas since they are mostly farmers. Githeri is eaten as a maize and bean mixture (mũrũgarũgio or one-by-one). It can also be made into a stew with the addition of greens, meat and potatoes which increases its nutritional value. [1]
