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.
Red bell peppers are often sweet and give a great crunch to any dish whilst giving it a wonderful color. The peppers in this Sweet Pepper Chicken pair with the mildly spiced chicken cubes to create a delicious supper. Serve on a bed of steamed Basmati or chow down with some hot chapati’s!
“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.
This is one of the simplest and one of the most popular Indian dishes around the world. My Chicken Makhani recipe is a restaurant style curry made at home with simple and fresh ingredients and a variety of spices. Infact, my husband says it’s even better than what you get in restaurants. This dish goes perfectly well with hot naans or jeera rice.
It’s funny how adding pineapple to any rice gives it a Hawaiian feel to it, however, this Hawaiian Rice is not only about adding pineapple. It’s got coconut milk giving it that sense of the coastal atmosphere, a crunch from the cashew nuts, freshness from the grated carrots, saltiness from the bacon and aroma from the different spices. This dish is a great twist to ordinary fried rice.
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.
Home-made fish cakes are so much better than store-bought. For one, they contain less artificial ingredients and secondly, home made are just more healthier using fresh ingredients and whole grain options. These Tuna Fish & Brown Rice Cakes are bold and richly flavoured. They are not just your typical fish cakes.
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!
Chicken Tikka Masala means a lot of yummy flavours, from spicy to slightly tangy, and combining it with some spaghetti gives you the best Indian-fusion called Chicken Tikka Masala Spaghetti. The chicken tikka recipe I have used below is a cheats recipe that I like to use when I have no time to marinate the chicken and when I am too lazy to get the barbecue going.
Who doesn’t love a filling and flavourful pot pie? This is one dish that I first cooked for my husband, who at that time was just my boyfriend, and my father-in-law. My Chicken & Rice Pot Pie is a combination of chicken and vegetables mixed with a rich and creamy sauce and layered with a pastry that is baked to a nice golden and flaky crust. This version also has rice in it however, feel free to leave out the rice if you’re not keen on a very heavy meal.
