East African Recipes

Today I'm going to spotlight another region of my website. This is the East African Recipes. A summary is presented, as well as recipes from every country in East Africa, as follows:

To whet your appetite, here's a classic East African (Tanzanian) recipe for Curried Chicken-Banana Soup:

Curried Chicken-Banana Soup

1 x 1.5kg chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 large onions, chopped
4 tbsp groundnut oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp curry powder
1 tbps dried red chillies (preferrably piri-piri) ground to a powder
2 tsp ground black pepper
1.8l chicken stock
2 large tomatoes, blanched, peeled, and chopped
200g grated coconut
2 ripe bananas, cut into 3cm lengths and quartered

Add the oil to a large, heavy, casserole dish and brown the chicken. Once nicely browned remove the chicken and reserve then add the onion and garlic to the pot and fry until soft and lightly browned then add the chilli powder, curry powder and black pepper. Fry for 2 minutes until the spices are aromatic then add the tomatoes, stock, chicken and coconut. Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce to a simmer, cover and allow to cook for 35 minutes.

When the chicken is thorughly cooked remove from the pan, allow to cool a little then strip the meat from the bones and return the meat to the pan along with the bananas. Simmer for 10 minutes, until everything is heated through. Lalde into bowls, garnish with parsley or coriander and serve.
