Brown Rice Chicken Biryani

I love the aroma and taste of any biryani.. and even though this brown rice chicken biryani takes so much time to cook, it has to be one of my favourite meals to cook and almost the only thing that comes to my mind when I am super hungry. This dish is a perfect combination of flavours and goes really well with some natural yoghurt and pickled lemons.

Chicken Tikka with Spicy Rice

The name “Chicken Tikka” starts to make you drool. Chicken tikka is so simple to make and always great for those barbecue’s with the family and friends. It is marinated in a spicy yoghurt mixture and cooked over some coal to give it that delicious smoky flavour. You haven’t visited Kenya if you haven’t had chicken tikka at most of the famous barbecue restaurants around the city. I pair mine with a spicy rice, but chicken tikka can be a meal in itself.
