Growing up fish was something we had but I did not enjoy. I am not sure exactly when this started but for the longest time I did not have the skin of the fish, then I stopped having whole fish I think for almost 10 years. I just for some reason thought it was grossish.

Then 3 years ago I went to visit my girl Mona in Kampala. On the day I was living we passed Tuskys to get some gonja crisps (plantain). Mona bought some fish and they were all packed together. Well, you can guess what happened, I found my self with fish in Nairobi. I obviously could not throw it out after it traveled all the way now could I?

Hubby was super happy about it, that was the day we started calling it something close to the name above. The actual name we call it is PG LOL but the point is it it pleases men.

Happy Cooking

Add the spices, let it cook for 5 mins then add the coconut milk. bring this to a simmer then add the dhania. I would typically then add in my fish till it warmed through then serve

Hi Foodies, do you love avocados? I love avocados but I really feel like they are over rated. Ok, maybe over rated is not the word but I bet some of you know what I mean. Yaani 3 days do not pass without me seeing a meme somewhere about how amazing and life changing avocados are, LOL. But to be honest, avocadoes are quite awesome right?

Eat them with githeri or rice, or just plain with salt or sugar, I love mine with sugar they are awesome. One of my fav ways to have avocado is in guamole. Now guacamole is not kachumbari with avocado, it kinda is but not really. It defers in some basic ingredients and method if doing it. Plus it is much tastier.


Watch the video of how to make it below. The recipe is below that.
