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.

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.

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.

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.
