Chicken Koroga

“Koroga” is a Swahili word that means “stir” and is very popular amongst Kenyans during the weekends. It is often done under “Banda’s” which mean “huts” and one is provided with a jiko (clay stove), large sufurias (pots), vegetables or meats and a range of spices along with any extra condiments. My chicken koroga is a home made version of the same that is cooked with a range of aromatic spices and good cuts of chicken. You can also add some yoghurt or cream to the gravy to make it richer. Serve the chicken koroga with hot chapatis or jeera rice.

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.

Home-made Roasted Peanuts (Njugu Karanga)

This style of roasted peanuts is an industry trick that my Mother shared with me. She owns a Food Industry where she produces all sorts of snacks and this is one of her best selling products. Roasting the peanuts in salt makes sure they are evenly roasted, don’t get burnt and get a nice salty layer. These salty roasted peanuts are the perfect companion with a cold glass of beer or whisky on the rocks.
