7 Spice Sunny Rice

Most times when I make a dish, I already have a rough idea of what I am going to name it. On this day, I had absolutely no idea what I would name the rice dish I was making. I did not want to name it according to the ingredients, but something a little bit more creative and different, but my brain refused to cooperate. I then reached out to you on my Instagram stories (If you ain’t following me on Instagram, please do! I would love to have you! <3) for help. 200 responses later, I was very much entertained by  your suggestions for my rice dish. From the sassy suggestions like ‘yaaaaaaaaaas rice’ and ‘bomb.com rice’, to funny ones like ‘somebody herb me’ and ‘walk wasabi KaluhiWali Kaluhi Wali’ and the rather strange ones like ‘Zemachi’ ‘Erromerro’ and Ruz rice’. Ya’ll are so so funny 😀 😀 :D, and so sweet as well for coming through to helping me. I appreciate each one of you! I decided to settle on  7 spice sunny rice, which is a combination of names from @tebz.co.ke and @martin_m.k. Asanteni!

So for this lovely day, let’s have some delicious rice!

Cumin Infused Potato cakes

Starch ingredients are so versatile in the kitchen because they can be transformed into so many dishes, each one having its very own character and unique taste. One of my favourite starches to cook with are potatoes because you can make nearly anything with them in a relatively short amount of time.

I have made potato cakes, which I was a bit nervous to make since it was my first time. Heaven shined on me and they turned out perfectly! The potatoes were boiled with whole cumin seeds, and their taste really comes through. The exterior is  crunchy because of the bread crumbs, while the interior is nice and soft. This is super easy to make and I hope you will give this a try.
