Oshikundu or Ontaku is a traditional Namibian drink made from fermented millet (mahangu). Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic varieties exist. It is made by women from cereal. It is often drunk the same day. It is widely sold in open markets.
A study carried out in 2001 by the Department of Food Science at the University of Namibia revealed that it was possible to produce a dry mix containing malted pearl millet and sorghum, that would be nutritionally enhanced with bambara nut. This mix could then be sold for making oshikundu.
