Pork & Sweet Potato Rice

If you love pork and sweet potatoes, then you’re in luck. A sweet and savoury dish will take your taste buds for a ride. 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. This is then reheated with some spinach and left over rice to create a whole meal perfect for lunch/dinner.

Barbecue Chicken & Rice Wraps

After a long day of work, who likes to spend a lot of time in the kitchen? No one? I thought so! My Barbecue Chicken & Rice Wraps are great when made ahead. I prepare mexican rice on a Sunday along with grilled barbecue chicken. For dinner the following day, I heat up the wraps, rice and chicken, layer it with some coriander leaves, squeeze some lemon and I have dinner ready for my Husband and myself.

Crispy Garlic & Avocado Fried Rice

We Kenyan’s love Avocado. I mean, if we had our way, we would put avocado in every single dish. This recipe is a simple fried rice served with creamy avocado and topped with crispy fried garlic. Trust me, the crispy garlic makes all the difference.

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.

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.

Kenyan-Masala-Chips

Masala Chips

My version of these Kenyan style masala chips takes the ordinary chips to a whole new level. They are saucy and spicy, yet crispy. The masala coats the chips perfectly and its the best dish to create for those quick lunches. Serve with your Sunday barbecue roast or have it on its own with a cold soda.
