Tuna Fish & Brown Rice Cakes

Home-made fish cakes are so much better than store-bought. For one, they contain less artificial ingredients and secondly, home made are just more healthier using fresh ingredients and whole grain options. These Tuna Fish & Brown Rice Cakes are bold and richly flavoured. They are not just your typical fish cakes.

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.

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.

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!
