This comforting one pot creamy chicken and mushrooms recipe is all you will ever need to impress that special one in your life. Tender juicy chicken soaked in this very creamy and flavourful bacon mushroom sauce and served with steamed Daawat basmati rice.
You often eat this Chinese style special chicken and cashew nut with a fried rice at most Chinese restaurants around. My dish involves making the most fragrant chili oil that sets the base for the whole dish. I like to have the chili oil with dumplings and with all other Chinese dishes. The cashewnuts in this dish also give it a really nice crunch, but the whole dish just comes together really well with the spice, spring onions, crispy fried chicken and a thick sauce that is to die for.
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.

Mushroom and peas in rice? What more do you want?! I love this super simple pilau recipe with mushrooms that is a great dish for vegetarians and to use up left over rice.
This cheesy Mexican rice dish is my favourite Mexican side dish. It’s loaded with all my favourite ingredients; cheese, peppers, kidney beans, avocado and so much more.
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.
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.
