Carrot Kari

In our house, it is very uncommon for us to have a meal without vegetable serving. Regardless of which vegetable it is, there has to be something served together with our protein and carbohydrates. Sometimes, we play around with various vegetables and in the process come up with new vegetable side dishes in the process.
Carrots are usually part of many dishes, but rarely are they the star of the dish. Today I let my amazing carrots be the star of the dish as I made this Indian inspired Carrot Kari . This one goes really well with ugali, but I felt it went best with rice dishes. Here is this unique,easy to make and delicious Carrot Kari.

Veggie Jollof Rice

Some few weeks back on my twitter, one of my followers shared a link I found rather interesting. It was about Jamie Oliver, a world renowned chef, who was being sued by Ghanaian and Nigerians for cooking, Jollof Rice, whose origin was from west Africa, but failing to use maggi cubes while cooking it. I found this very amusing, and a bit unfair, because in my opinion, what makes cooking exciting is having your own take on an already delicious meal and not always following the original recipes to the letter. Read the full article here. Hoping that I do not also get a law suit slapped my way 😀

Today I added my own twist to this controversial meal- Jollof rice. It has the right amount of spice, heat and has the perfect blend between moisture and starchiness. It is often cooked with meat (goat meat, chicken etc) but I decided to use what I had ready with me. Its easy to make, and different from what we are used to and that makes it even more exciting! You must give this a try :).
