Ndengu-Samosas

Ndengu Samosa (Green Grams Samosa)

Samosa’s have got to be one of the most popular snacks in Kenya. You often find them filled with minced meat, but this version of vegetarian samosa’s filled with Ndengu or Pojo if that’s what you call green grams is so delicious, i’m sure most of you will choose to have it over the meat filled version. These samosas are little parcels of heaven.

Green-gram-makhani

Green Gram Makhani

My green gram makhani served with some Indian style roti’s makes the perfect comfort meal for a cool night. The word “makhani” refers to “with butter” and the addition of butter in this dish gives it that perfect smooth finish whilst the double cream makes a rich curry base. I use a smoking method in this recipe using hot coat and butter to give it a smoky taste and take the dish to a whole new flavour level.
