Beef and Sukuma Wiki Plus

Beef & Sukuma Wiki Plus

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.

Githeri

Githeri

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!

Kenyan-Beef-Samosas

Kenyan Beef Samosas

The best Kenyan beef samosa recipe consists of a delicious meat filled in a pocket of crispy pastry. In this recipe, I show you how to make a quick beef filling and my special way of making the samosa wrappers as well. You can substitute the minced beef for mutton, minced chicken, cottage cheese or soy chunks.

Sukuma-Wiki-Plus

Sukuma Wiki Plus

I love a simple Sukuma Wiki with Ugali and can eat it over and over again every day. This Sukuma Wiki Plus is enriched with the new Iron Fortified Royco Beef Cubes to get your iron up and tastes amazing. For Vegetarians, skip the cubes and add salt instead.

Kenyan-Style-Goat-Pilau

How to Cook a Kenyan Style Goat Pilau

The best thing about the Kenyan Style Goat Pilau is the perfect marriage of the tender goat meat with the spiced rice. This dish is a burst of flavour and a whole meal in itself. This dish is known to be best cooked by the women of the Kenyan Coastal region, but it’s so simple to make and I’m sure this will be one of those recipes that will be made very often in your home.

Banana-Cake

Banana Cake

The best thing about making a banana cake is how simple it is and yet so delicious. This recipe is also perfect to use up those over ripe bananas and what’s even better is the comforting feeling of coming back home after a long day of work to a slice of this moist banana cake and a cup of tea.

Liver-with-lemon-coriander-rice

Liver with Lemon Coriander Rice

The secret to the perfect liver is not to over cook it. This recipe makes the most delicious liver which I serve with a coriander rice that has a hint of lemon. What a combination!

Chicken-Curry

Chicken Curry

Chicken curry with rice is just comfort food for me. I love the simple flavours in this dish that pair so well with some steamed rice or chapati’s. My recipe is a a Kenyan style chicken curry that is also sometimes referred to as Dhania chicken in a lot of restaurants around Kenya.

Matumbo-Wet-Fry-Tripe

Matumbo Wet Fry (Tripe)

In Kenya, matumbo (tripe) is very affordable and it is actually really delicious if done well. Matumbo wet fry is often served with Ugali. My recipe requires you to boil the matumbo for 3-4 hours or until tender, but if you are in a hurry, you can use a pressure cooker and that will take you less than half an hour.

Mbuzi-choma

Mbuzi Choma (Kenyan Barbecued Goat)

If you have lived in Kenya or visited the country, Mbuzi Choma (barbecued Goat meat) or Nyama Choma is something you must have had at least once. The meat is cooked over an open flame and traditionally served with ugali, kachumbari (a tomato and onion salad) and some salt. You just lightly dip the meat into the salt and enjoy the simple flavours.
