Swahili Fish With Coconut Rice (Mtuzi wa Samaki)

There’s always a confusion on where the Swahili Fish with Coconut Rice originally comes from, Kenya or Zanzibar Island? Wherever it originates from, we Kenyans surely love this dish!

Mexican Bean Rice

Are you craving for Mexican Rice from your favourite taco stand? It’s so simple to re-create at home. On this particular day, I ended up using kidney beans instead of black beans used in an authentic Mexican bean rice because I find black beans often very hard to find in most supermarkets. The taste however, is still so delicious and I top my Mexican rice with some cheese, avocado, sour cream, coriander leaves and some tortilla chips so I can scoop up the rice with a chip and munch on while watching movies.

African Chicken & Peanut Stew

Who doesn’t like chicken and who doesn’t like peanut butter? Well, atleast for me, the combination of the two is my favourite. This African Chicken & Peanut Stew, a specialty in West Africa, is packed with flavour. A sprinkle of roasted and roughly chopped peanuts for garnish gives it a crunch. Pair this dish with some steamed Basmati Rice for a complete dinner.

beef-pilau

Beef Pilau

This beef pilau recipe is one that you will get right every single time you make it. The aroma from this dish is inviting and warming, and it is an extremely popular Kenyan dish. Most pilau’s often have the same method of preparing the base, so once you get that right, you have mastered the art of making any type of pilau.

Crispy Kenyan Maru Bhajia’s

Maru Bhajia’s are an extremely popular snack in East Africa, especially in Kenya. Bhajia’s can generally be made with a wide range of vegetables including onions, fenugreek leaves, aubergines etc and even with fish. My version includes the use of rice to make them super crispy. I serve the bhajia’s with a tomato chutney and it often also served with “khatu” which is a sweet and sour tamarind sauce. If you’d like to omit the rice, mix all the ingredients with the sliced potatoes without using any water and fry.

Crispy-garlic-and-avocado-fried-rice

Crispy Garlic & Avocado Fried Rice

We Kenyan’s love Avocado. I mean, if we had our way, we would put avocado in every single dish. This recipe is a simple fried rice served with creamy avocado and topped with crispy fried garlic. Trust me, the crispy garlic makes all the difference.
