Chicken Makhani (Restaurant Style Butter Chicken)

This is one of the simplest and one of the most popular Indian dishes around the world. My Chicken Makhani recipe is a restaurant style curry made at home with simple and fresh ingredients and a variety of spices. Infact, my husband says it’s even better than what you get in restaurants. This dish goes perfectly well with hot naans or jeera rice.

Easy Chicken Biryani

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.

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.

Kenyan Mutton Kebabs- Restaurant Style

There’s something special about Kenyan Mutton Kebabs and it has to do with the egg coating. These are a street food staple all across East Africa and a great snack for parties. I have used minced mutton for this recipe but feel free to use any other types of minced meat. I also used curry powder to keep the flavours simple but you can add any other herbs and spices that you may like.

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.
