They are the perfect starter or snack to have for those dinner parties and you won’t believe just how simple they are to make.
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.
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.
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.
I love Indian sweets and these are so easy to make at home. My oats and cashewnut barfi sandwiched in a layer of sweet coconut is the perfect dessert to end the evening.
I love any types of bhajias and since my little one started enjoying them too, i’ve been adding a lot more vegetables in them. She particularly enjoys eating these cabbage bhajia’s that are deep fried to give it that perfect crunch and serve with some ketchup and a spicy chutney.
Shrikhand, also known as sweetened thick yoghurt is a quick dessert that is super creamy and tastes amazing when served chilled.
