Recipes - By Chef Ali Mandhry | November 28th 2020 at 11:00:00 GMT +0300

We all love some good curry or stew, also known as mchuzi in Kiswahili. This is a super delicious thick mchuzi made out of vegetables that are readily available in the market. You can serve this with rice or even ugali. Let’s get cooking.

What you will need:

  • 1/4 kg potatoes, cut into quarters
  • 2 medium size carrots, diced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2-3 tomatoes
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 1 tbsp mchuzi mix
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1/4 cup tamarind sauce
  • Salt to taste

What to do:

Add ginger paste and let it boil until potato and carrots are cooked. Set aside.
