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!
I love peas. It is one of those meals I can have all day every day with nearly everything. We are really blessed to come from a country where we can find organic fruits and veggies at a really affordable prices, peas being one of them. Hence, when ever I can, I always get myself some. I was walking towards my bus stage one evening and I saw this lady removing peas straight from their pods. Nothing looks fresher and more inviting than that. I stopped and got myself some and decided to make a rice dish with them.
This is a light fried rice dish. It is wholesome very healthy and very warm if I may say. I has this charm that will make where ever you are feel like home. As an addition to our many rice recipes, sample my pea and red bell pepper fried rice.
One of the things I consider while buying a perfume is how many hours it will still smell long after the first spritz. One of the things I like about my current perfume is the layers of heavenly scents that come alive in one harmonious dance for the entire day. The first layer is a fresh burst of plum and blue berry. As the day goes on, the middle notes hit you with orchid, iris and freesia. And as the day winds down, I smell like amber, vanilla and musk. Beyond perfect! After all, a girl has got to smell great all the time 🙂
Today’s dish is alot like my perfume since the flavors are marvelously layered and you taste each and every ingredient from your first bite, to the time you swallow. The first flavors are those of cumin, chilli and ginger. As you continue, you taste the ginger and the pepper and then finally feel the subtle yet intense mustard and bay leaf flavor. This is what the gods eat! If you are ready for something different, this is for you 🙂
