Lunch can’t get any quicker with this really easy to make chili garlic spaghetti. Sometimes simple food is just the best!

This cold weather calls for a warm and hearty plate for coconut and vegetable pilau. I love coconut in rice and the coconut in this dish marries with the spices in the rice so beautifully. This has got to be one of my favourite Pilau dishes.
It may seem like the most basic thing in the kitchen to know how to cook rice, yet most people get it wrong. In this recipe, I show you in detail how to cook the perfect rice.
Kheer is an integral part of every Indian’s home. I don’t know why but it is one of those comforting desserts that just bring a smile to my face. My recipe has the perfect balance of sweetness and a bite from the rice and nuts as well as a beautiful aroma from the saffron.
Vibibi are soft and fluffy pancakes that are made from a rice and coconut batter. They are the perfect option for a light breakfast and you can even prepare the batter from the night before. You can also use rice flour if you don’t have the time or patience to soak the rice over night.
Pasta bakes are great meal ideas that you can prepare in advance for parties or get togethers. This pasta bake is a combination of courgettes and spinach and is just deliciously cheesy.
Samosa’s have got to be one of the most popular snacks in Kenya. You often find them filled with minced meat, but this version of vegetarian samosa’s filled with Ndengu or Pojo if that’s what you call green grams is so delicious, i’m sure most of you will choose to have it over the meat filled version. These samosas are little parcels of heaven.
My green gram makhani served with some Indian style roti’s makes the perfect comfort meal for a cool night. The word “makhani” refers to “with butter” and the addition of butter in this dish gives it that perfect smooth finish whilst the double cream makes a rich curry base. I use a smoking method in this recipe using hot coat and butter to give it a smoky taste and take the dish to a whole new flavour level.
Sometimes we just run out of ideas when it comes to cooking baby food. And it surely doesn’t have to be boring. This Banana Berry Rice Pudding is one of those recipes that my little one loves so much. And she has also featured in this recipe, which makes this recipe very close to my heart.
