Eating maku - Uluru National Park (Ayers Rock)

Eating maku


If you`re lucky, you might get into a situation where you can try `maku`. This is the Pitjantjatjara word for witchetty grub.

The standard line for unusual culinary fare is "Well, it tastes like chicken"... not in this case! It`s like a mix between egg and peanut butter.

NB: If you're given a choice, try it cooked. The texture is better :-)
