Rolex is a Ugandan street food that is typically made by rolling an omlette made with onions, tomatoes, etc, into a chapati. My version is an elevated version of the classic Ugandan Rolex.
There is just something special about crispy whole fried fish that is soaked in a sauce. It is comfort food on another level. I love having my fried fish in a tomato peanut butter sauce. The sweetness and tanginess from the sauce is nicely soaked up by the marinated and fried fish.
Ever had some tacos and wondered how they are made? They are so simple to make and I show you how to make them with the most basic ingredients that we all often have in the kitchen. I make a simple minced meat that is filled in a shell made out of maize meal and topped with an avocado kachumbari (I guess that would be a mix of salsa and guacamole?).
There is something so special about eating Kienyeji chicken. For me, maybe it’s the fact that it takes so long to cook, but is tender to perfection. I serve my kienyeji chicken wet fry with a peanut butter sukuma wiki that goes perfectly well with Ugali.
This African peanut soup is creamy, delicious and ready in just half an hour. I like to add sweet potatoes and arrow root in my peanut soup which makes it the best comfort meal for those cooler nights.
Sukuma wiki with spinach that is enriched with the new iron fortified Royco Beef Cubes tossed with some beef strips and served with some soft and flaky chapati’s is my idea of a balanced meal.
These banana fritters are an absolute favourite for breakfast. My recipe gives you the perfect banana fritter that is light and delicious.
This savory, nutty and spicy one pot African chicken curry is my absolute favourite. The juicy chicken thighs marinated in a light spice mixture, cooked with loads of green peppers gives this dish a whole load of flavour to go with a bowl of steamed rice.
Githeri is one of the main staple foods in Kenya and a personal favourite too. It is such a simple dish made out of beans and maize but so wholesome, comforting and filling. My recipe is a classic githeri with a slight twist. I add peanut butter to give it that nutty taste and it just works so well. Trust me!
The name says it all. This recipe is an amazing combination of chicken breasts stuffed with sukuma wiki and spinach that is enhanced in flavour using the new Royco Iron Fortified Beef Cubes and cooked in a rich coconut sauce. I serve mine with mashed potato but it goes really well with some steamed rice or ugali too.
