There are a couple of things that are distinctly Kenyan. “Me I” is distinctly Kenyan. Our loud, artsy Matatus are distinctly Kenyan. Phrases such as ‘wah’ ‘si’ ‘hebu’ can only be understood by someone who has grown up Kenyan; and even when explained, the meaning will not be understood as it should. Choma over every holiday, and if we are being honest- during any time we get together- is one of those distinct Kenyan habits. We love our choma!! Choma is a roast- equivalent to the South African braai. We do love our meat, and roasting it makes it even better.
Mbuzi (goat) choma is very very popular too. It is among my top three favorite chomas and today’s recipe and video takes you through how I make mine explosively good!!! I hope you love it as much as I love it!
The air is now cold , thin and still in Nairobi. The sun may peak past the clouds from time to time, but the chilly weather has made it’s presence felt without doubt. For a nation whose people are so used to balmy weather and whose people are, literally and figuratively, born with sunshine in their hearts, 17°C is a bit icy for us Kenyans lol! However on the bright side, this kind of weather makes way for more baking. More indulgent treats. More of our kitchen smelling of warm spices and less of grilled meat. More cake! More crepes! More freshly baked cookies! And this year, I am definitely baking a lot more and stepping into what I may not be used to, but into where I shall learn and grow and without doubt, enjoy! You can bet I will take you on this adventure; and for this gorgeous Wednesday, I give you my amazingly delicious Pink Lady® Apple chai masala oat cookies!
