Umngqusho is a South African dish based on samp and sugar beans, usually served with hard body chicken which is called umleqwa in isiXhosa. This dish is a staple meal for most South African families, referred to as isitambu by the Zulu people and umngqusho by the Xhosa people.

The Xhosa version, served with butter or fat, was apparently Nelson Mandela's favourite dish.[1]
