Isombe Christmas in Rwanda
Written by MaureenK on December 20, 2021
It is not Christmas in Rwanda without Isombe, this is a meal consisting of mashed cassava leaves and green bananas cooked in tomato sauce. Here Christmas celebrations commence on the eve of Christmas and sidewalks are filled with people making their way to church, the night mass is filled with prayers and beautiful traditional Christmas hymns sang in Kinyarwanda. For most in Rwanda, this is a day of prayer, relaxation, and eating kebabs. Grilled beef or goat, fried potatoes, and rice will be the centerpiece for most meals, and for most families, it is the one time of the year where meat is part of their meal.
