Who doesn’t like a good sandwich? This french toast smokie sandwich is the sandwich of your dreams. It combines your two favourite breakfast options together, french toast and smokies.
Sukuma wiki is one of my favourite greens to eat and it just never gets boring. In this recipe, I elevate the dish by combining another favourite, coconut milk! I serve the coconut sukuma wiki with a very fragrant turmeric rice which turned out to be the perfect match for the creamy greens.
Meat pies are a great appetiser for parties and get togethers. My simplified meat pies are filled with a fragrant chicken mince and deep fried for that extra crispiness. I absolutely love these parcels of joy.
We make the regular omelette all the time, but have you ever thought of making an Ugali omelette that has actual pieces of Ugali in it? This dish is perfect for Sunday Brunch and always great to use left over ugali.
I love the aroma and taste of any biryani.. and even though this brown rice chicken biryani takes so much time to cook, it has to be one of my favourite meals to cook and almost the only thing that comes to my mind when I am super hungry. This dish is a perfect combination of flavours and goes really well with some natural yoghurt and pickled lemons.
Kuku paka (chicken cooked in a coconut sauce) and biryani are two amazing dishes, so I decided to bring them together and ended up with a recipe that I will be making over and over again for a very long time. The chicken is cooked in a rich coconut gravy and then layered with par-boiled fragrant rice and topped with my favourite fried onions and coriander leaves. This dish is a winner!
The name “Chicken Tikka” starts to make you drool. Chicken tikka is so simple to make and always great for those barbecue’s with the family and friends. It is marinated in a spicy yoghurt mixture and cooked over some coal to give it that delicious smoky flavour. You haven’t visited Kenya if you haven’t had chicken tikka at most of the famous barbecue restaurants around the city. I pair mine with a spicy rice, but chicken tikka can be a meal in itself.
Mutton kebabs coated in maize meal and fried are the best party snack ever. Most families have their version of a kebab family recipe, but this one here is special. It gets crispy on the outside and super delicious on the inside.
Eggs are a very versatile ingredient and that’s why I cook with them quite often. This easy egg curry is ready in 25 minutes and is amazing served with some bread or rice. Perfect dinner or lunch idea.
When you think of fries, you often think of potato fries. I always thought that too, except that now when I think of fries, these ugali fries instantly come to my mind. They are surprisingly the most delicious snack to have on its own and the coating gives it that amazing crunch. Feel free to experiment with as many spices as you like in the breading and if you have some left over ugali from the meal before, it works great to make these ugali fries.
