Greek Pasta Bake (Pastitsio)

A Greek Pasta Bake also known as Pastitsio is the perfect marriage of flavours. My recipe consists of a layering of perfectly cooked pasta seasoned with herbs, lamb mince in a delicious tomato sauce, béchamel sauce and melted cheese. This dish is a great crowd pleaser and can be made in advance and refrigerated to bake the following day or for the weekend.

Barbecue Pork Fried Rice

Who doesn’t like a barbecue? That char flavour on the meat is just heavenly. However, sometimes you just don’t have the energy to fire up the jiko and that’s when my recipe comes in handy. This barbecue pork fried rice was a favourite at my dinner table. The pork was so good that my husband ate a lot of the barbecue pork by itself. If you like, feel free to pull the meat apart, add some more barbecue sauce and enjoy it in a sandwich.

chicken-koroga

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.

Beef Pilau

This beef pilau recipe is one that you will get right every single time you make it. The aroma from this dish is inviting and warming, and it is an extremely popular Kenyan dish. Most pilau’s often have the same method of preparing the base, so once you get that right, you have mastered the art of making any type of pilau.

Mandazi (Swahili Doughnuts)

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.

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.
