“Kumala (or Kumara), is such a versatile ingredient that can be prepared so many different ways. I played around with this rendition from Wattie's and have found something that works just great!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash the kumala and dry well. Trim the ends. Rub the kumala with oil and place on a baking tray. Cook at 200oC for 45-50 minutes or until well cooked. Alternatively prick the kumara with a fork and microwave on high power for 15 minutes or until tender.
  2. Slice a top off each kumala and scoop the flesh into a bowl.
  3. Add the pineapple, ginger, spring onions and Corned Beef and mix gently with a fork to break up the corned beef and mix the ingredients lightly. Do not mash.
  4. Re-fill each kumala with 1/4 of the mixture and return or place on the baking tray. Sprinkle each with a little grated cheese.
  5. Cook at 200oC for 15 minutes until piping hot and golden.
