Brown-Rice-Chicken-Biryani

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.

kuku-paka-biryani

Kuku Paka Biryani

Kuku paka (chicken cooked in a coconut sauce) and biryani are two amazing dishes, so I decided to bring them together and ended up with a recipe that I will be making over and over again for a very long time. The chicken is cooked in a rich coconut gravy and then layered with par-boiled fragrant rice and topped with my favourite fried onions and coriander leaves. This dish is a winner!

Chicken-Tikka-and-Spicy-Rice

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.

I love any types of bhajias and since my little one started enjoying them too, i’ve been adding a lot more vegetables in them. She particularly enjoys eating these cabbage bhajia’s that are deep fried to give it that perfect crunch and serve with some ketchup and a spicy chutney.

Fish-Fried-Rice

Fish Fried Rice

Fried rice is my favourite meal to make when I have left over rice and some fish in the freezer. I love the simplicity of this recipe and love the flavours of the fish with rice. And best of everything, it takes under 15 minutes to make.
