Githeri is a Kenyan staple food consisting of beans and maize that are stewed with onions, tomatoes, and sometimes potatoes or meat chunks. The stew is often flavored with cumin, turmeric, or chili powder.

It is traditionally served on its own, although it can be served with rice or crusty bread on the side.

The dish originates from the Kikuyu tribe, living in Central Kenya.
