The sweet potatoes are roasted to soften the potatoes and bring out its sweetness along with a little char and the pork is nicely seared and seasoned.

It’s funny how adding pineapple to any rice gives it a Hawaiian feel to it, however, this Hawaiian Rice is not only about adding pineapple. It’s got coconut milk giving it that sense of the coastal atmosphere, a crunch from the cashew nuts, freshness from the grated carrots, saltiness from the bacon and aroma from the different spices. This dish is a great twist to ordinary fried rice.

“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.
