In the Virgin Islands it's called Fungi, what do your people call this dish?

Wouldn't this be the equivalent to cornbread? Of the texture/cooking style is different, but it seems like it's being used in a similar fashion.

Bro thank you my english speaking brain clashing with my spanish speaking brain was like "what the fukk do we call cornmeal :mindblown:" and of course its fukking harina duh :snoop:

So this is harina mashed with quimbobo (okra)? Do we even eat those things combined like that? Ive had both just separate... either this is something Cubans dont do or yall mfers exposing my mom and grandma dukes as not being versatile cooks :gucci:

Edit: ok just called up mom dukes :mjlol: she said yea we do eat it like that but its also used in Santeria rituals as food for ancestors because thats what the ancestors ate... Ive personally never tried it but fukk it now Im interested
:hubie:

Looks just like him, even has the hard stare. I was wondering why a chef looked so mean during a photo shoot.
