Punjabi Style ‘Tawa’ Prawns!

I promised you spice and I'm delivering!!! This week, I start by taking the heat right up with these super king size prawns that are doused in glorious Punjabi masala. I love love love this dish and what made it even more amazing, is that we were cooking these on my makeshift little grill in the middle of the Nairobi National Park as the heavens let loose an absolute deluge of rain. It was an absolute comedy - such great fun !! I hope you enjoy this finger licking recipe as much as we did!

Harvesting Liquid Oil, Taste Safari Discovering Mountain Oil

What a spectacular, sunny day in Kenya! I've just found out it's so blazing hot as we are going through a five day phase of what is known as the Equinox, a phenomena due to the sun directly positioned over the Equator Line ( forgive me if I'm wrong here - I'm definitely not a Meteorologist - but the current rumour of this incredibly hot weather is coming down to this illuminating fact! ) Apart from that - I'm so excited to release my first article on Artisanal Kenyan Producers. I have handpicked a few suppliers that I have been particularly impressed with, delving into their philosophies and understanding how their products reach us in the market. There are so many incredible food entrepreneurs that are striving to bring us wonderful produce, so keep posted on this blog to see who is being featured over the next few weeks. To keep it all exciting as we do here at Taste Safari, I'm going to bring you a recipe or two using the particular product - so I hope you can seek these out and use them in trying new dishes at home....That's all for today...happy reading and have yourself an absolutely beautiful weekend xxx Sandy
