Chicken & Rice Pot Pie

Who doesn’t love a filling and flavourful pot pie? This is one dish that I first cooked for my husband, who at that time was just my boyfriend, and my father-in-law. My Chicken & Rice Pot Pie is a combination of chicken and vegetables mixed with a rich and creamy sauce and layered with a pastry that is baked to a nice golden and flaky crust. This version also has rice in it however, feel free to leave out the rice if you’re not keen on a very heavy meal.

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.

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.

Mandazi/Mahamri can also be called a Swahili Doughnut and originated from the Swahili Coast. It is a slightly sweet fried bread that is flavoured with some cardamom and coconut milk and is the perfect snack for breakfast with a cup of hot Chai.
