Greek Pasta Bake (Pastitsio)

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.

African-Chicken-Peanut-Stew

African Chicken & Peanut Stew

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.

Mawe Tatu Cake (Cake without an Oven)

There’s just something special about cake that is baked in the jiko. This mawe tatu cake is so easy to make and the perfect recipe for those who don’t have an oven. Mawe tatu stands for 3 stones however, feel free to use sand instead of stones to bake the cake.

Home-made Roasted Peanuts (Njugu Karanga)

This style of roasted peanuts is an industry trick that my Mother shared with me. She owns a Food Industry where she produces all sorts of snacks and this is one of her best selling products. Roasting the peanuts in salt makes sure they are evenly roasted, don’t get burnt and get a nice salty layer. These salty roasted peanuts are the perfect companion with a cold glass of beer or whisky on the rocks.

Mandazi-Swahili-Doughnuts

Mahamri / Coconut Mandazi (Swahili Doughnuts)

Mandazi/Mahamri can also be called a Swahili Doughnut and originated from the Swahili Coast. It is a slightly sweet fried bread that is flavoured with some cardamom and coconut milk and is the perfect snack for breakfast with a cup of hot Chai.
