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.

Crispy Garlic & Avocado Fried Rice

We Kenyan’s love Avocado. I mean, if we had our way, we would put avocado in every single dish. This recipe is a simple fried rice served with creamy avocado and topped with crispy fried garlic. Trust me, the crispy garlic makes all the difference.

Whole-Fried-Fish-in-Peanut-Butter-Sauce

Whole Fried Fish in a Tomato Peanut Butter Sauce

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.

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.

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.

Minced-Meat-Tacos

Minced Meat Tacos

Ever had some tacos and wondered how they are made? They are so simple to make and I show you how to make them with the most basic ingredients that we all often have in the kitchen. I make a simple minced meat that is filled in a shell made out of maize meal and topped with an avocado kachumbari (I guess that would be a mix of salsa and guacamole?).
