Cumin Chicken and Mushroom Fried Rice

I absolutely love mushrooms!!! I can have them during all mealtime and I enjoy how easily they can be incorporated into nearly any dish you want!! I was deep in my love affair with mushrooms as I told you on twitter when I decided to make this recipe. It turned out way better than I had imagined and my mom really really enjoyed my cumin chicken and mushroom fried rice. And in my book, if mom  loves it, you know it is really good!!

Before we get into it, I would like to thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart for your support and encouragement through the years up until my being part of “Beyond The Plate: Best Food Blogs From Around The World”.  You are appreciated and I am where I am because of you! Thank you for all the warm comments and good vibes you all sent my way!  {{{*HUG*}}}

Now, let’s get into this bomb recipe!!

Rosemary and Egg Plant Fried Rice

You know, I do not believe in the concept of ‘Njaanuary‘. Njaanuary is a Kenyan term (that directly translates to ‘Hunger January) used to describe apparent financial strain and destitute brokenness that people seem to undergo every January, and funny enough, will experience it every first month of every year as long as they live . For me, if you spend frugally in December, you just can’t be dead broke and struggling in January. Yes, you can enjoy your December holidays, but with prudence, good planning and with the future in mind. Please dear readers, don’t make finishing all your money in December a habit, pretty please <3.  One thing I agree however, is after the holidays, our fridges are packed with left overs from the festivities. I shared one left over recipe with you last week that you can check out here. Left overs too do not indicate brokenness nor are they bad to have, but just encourage a culture that is not one of wastefulness. I love the prospect of revamping left overs since you can literally make anything! And the aspect of developing a new dish from one that was already complete is pretty exciting! I made this rosemary and eggplant fried rice a couple of weeks ago for my younger sisters before they reported back to college life. They loved it! It was soooo easy to make, very light and delicious too. Have some left over rice in your fridge? Let’s go on a kitchen adventure :))

Sweet Corn Fried Rice

One of the most comforting smells to date is the same one that filled mum’s kitchen- starchy steam rising out of a sufuria of pishori rice. As we grew older and started helping out in the preparation of our meals, my mum always insisted on two things: Rice should never be sticky and it should always have some oil and salt. Second to ugali, rice is almost always present in the Adagala household. Besides pilau, we use rice that is already cooked to make sweet corn fried rice. It is not only delicious, but it makes a statement and it can be made in less than an hour. So anytime you have impromptu guests visiting your home, surprise them with this delectable rice dish!
