Includes Three Delicious Recipes
East African Pilau with Kachumbari
Pilau can be found in most parts of Eastern Africa, including Kenya and Tanzania. It is a one-pot rice meal cooked with spices and meat, and it is a popular dish for special occasions like public holidays, weddings and parties. Unlike its Indian counterpart of Biryani Rice, Pilau is less spicy, but still full of flavor!
Nyama / Githeri with Ugali and Sukuma Wiki
Nyama means “meat” while ugali means “mush” in Swahili. Ugali is the most common Kenyan staple and is served with everyday meals alongside vegetables and meat stew. It is made from white cornmeal that is cooked with boiling water until it reaches a dense texture. A classic Kenyan beef stew / vegetarian stew accompanied with ugali and Sukuma wiki is the ultimate comfort food in Kenyan households!
Kuku Paka with Rice
This is a popular Kenyan coastal dish that is a great representation of the country’s many cultural influences – from local African to European and Indian. Kuku is Swahili for “chicken” while Paka is Bengali for “delicious” – in short “delicious chicken!” It requires grilling of marinated meat before braising it in a spiced coconut sauce.
