We Kenyan’s love to use coconut in most of our recipes. Now you can include it in your grilled chicken too. The coconut cream mellows down the spice in this recipe and blend creates an absolutely amazing marinade for this chicken. Serve this spiced coconut chicken on a bed of yellow rice for a complete meal.
Whether it is home made pastry or store bought, the crisp and flakiness of the layers just go with anything with cheese. To make my leek & mushroom pastry a whole meal, I decided to add some of my favourite ingredients into the mix. I had to have mushrooms, leeks and rice, not to forget, a whole lot of cheese. I braided the pastry and brushed it with an egg wash to give it that beautiful golden design.
There’s just something special about cake that is baked in the jiko. This mawe tatu cake is so easy to make and the perfect recipe for those who don’t have an oven. Mawe tatu stands for 3 stones however, feel free to use sand instead of stones to bake the cake.
This is the definition of comfort food. You just can’t go wrong with chicken, coconut, green beans and rice in one dish. This dish is so simple to make and beats any take out in the world. Healthy, nutritious and packed with flavour!
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.
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.
