This is one of those dishes that is particular to Indians who live in Nairobi. My mom made this with fish or chicken while growing up but when me and my sis became veggie she switched to the black eyed pea version ... which is equally good! Traditionally this is served with a fried coconut bread called Mandazi (recipe coming soon) but I keep it simple and just eat this with rice. Have it on new years to bring you good luck ... black eyed peas are thought to bring prosperity :D —amreen
I am one of the rare northern Cali girls who hearts LA. My family hails from India via Kenya and being a good little south asian i spent many of my young years in the kitchen. Surrounded by good food from birth (thanks mom!) i have always loved cooking, eating and learning about food. In recent years i have developed an interest in the history of food and its cultural connection particularly in how imperialism and colonization has had an influence on cuisines of the world. This blog is my way of exploring the amazing web of nourishment that sustains us.
