Who doesn’t like chicken and who doesn’t like peanut butter? Well, atleast for me, the combination of the two is my favourite. This African Chicken & Peanut Stew, a specialty in West Africa, is packed with flavour. A sprinkle of roasted and roughly chopped peanuts for garnish gives it a crunch. Pair this dish with some steamed Basmati Rice for a complete dinner.
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.
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.

There is just something special about crispy whole fried fish that is soaked in a sauce. It is comfort food on another level. I love having my fried fish in a tomato peanut butter sauce. The sweetness and tanginess from the sauce is nicely soaked up by the marinated and fried fish.
Some may call it puff puff, mandazi ya kumimina, kaimati without the sugar syrup or even mandazi ya maji. Whatever you want to call it, these little puffed balls of deliciousness are an amazing snack for any time of the day with a nice hot cup of tea.
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!
