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.

Lamb Kofta (Meatball) Curry

This lamb kofta curry is one that won’t take hours to cook and guess what, it doesn’t require you to brown the kofta (meatballs) either. Enjoy this fragrant dish with a side of steamed basmati or jeera rice or some hot chapati’s.

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.

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!

Mandazi-Swahili-Doughnuts

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.

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.
