Jamaican Corn Meal Dish Recipe ”Dukunu”

I came across this Jamaican meal and I think it’s a  healthy meal with a simple recipe to try . It called Dukuno” made with corn meal/flour, sugar, coconut milk etc. If you love Corn, surely you would  love this dish.

It can easily be mistaken as moimoi but  it’s  actually corn as no kind of oil or fresh pepper is added to it.


2 cups spelt flour

½ teaspoon sea salt

¾ cup agave syrup

½ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ cup grated coconut

1 ½ cups coconut milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

quailed banana leaves

big pot of boiling water (about 2 ½ liter)


Quailed banana leaves

1 Heat banana leaves over fire until slightly darkened

2 Cut banana leaves in about 9 inches squares

Putting it together

1 Mixed all dry ingredients and grated coconut together. Add coconut milk, agave syrup and vanilla, mix well.

2 Put about 1/2 cup of mixture unto each quailed banana leave sheet. Fold up the two ends and tie with strings (preferably strings that can be taking from the bark of the banana tree)


2 Drop into boiling water. There should be enough water to cover all parcels. Simmer for about an hour.

Remove banana leaves before eating.
