We Kenyan’s love our fish and why should we not? We get fresh Tilapia fish from Lake Victoria in the Nyanza province. This Fried fish with tomato gravy is served with a Kenyan staple, Ugali. The fish is deep fried until crispy and coated with a thick tomato gravy.

Nicely spiced chicken, a beautifully cooked chapati (chapo) and some kachumbari over the top makes this chicken chapati wrap a must try.
There’s just something special about cake that is baked in the jiko. This mawe tatu cake is so easy to make and the perfect recipe for those who don’t have an oven. Mawe tatu stands for 3 stones however, feel free to use sand instead of stones to bake the cake.
