This savory, nutty and spicy one pot African chicken curry is my absolute favourite. The juicy chicken thighs marinated in a light spice mixture, cooked with loads of green peppers gives this dish a whole load of flavour to go with a bowl of steamed rice.
This Asian inspired pork rice is great for quick dinners and is so full of flavour. Hearty and delicious! It can also be made using chicken instead of pork or if you are vegetarian, substitute for some soaked soya chunks for that meatiness.
Mandazi is a popular snack that is sold at almost every local restaurant and by the road side too and usually taken for breakfast with a cup of tea. This lemon mandazi adds a whole new element of flavour to the regular mandazi.
The best thing about the Kenyan Style Goat Pilau is the perfect marriage of the tender goat meat with the spiced rice. This dish is a burst of flavour and a whole meal in itself. This dish is known to be best cooked by the women of the Kenyan Coastal region, but it’s so simple to make and I’m sure this will be one of those recipes that will be made very often in your home.
Chicken Biryani is a beautifully flavoured rice dish that is often layered with a spiced chicken/mutton/beef/vegetarian gravy and rice that is infused with whole spices. Traditionally, a chicken biryani involves a lot of steps including marinating the meat, frying the vegetables for layering, loads of coriander and mint leaves, fried eggs, saffron milk etc. My version is a simplified recipe that gives you those exquisite flavours.
Serve with some plain yoghurt and lemon pickle or kachumbari.
Sukuma wiki with spinach that is enriched with the new iron fortified Royco Beef Cubes tossed with some beef strips and served with some soft and flaky chapati’s is my idea of a balanced meal.
