An Indian influenced flatbread, the chapati is usually served with stews, curries and many dishes that originate from the coast. Its supple and flaky layers are accentuated with the crispy golden exterior and make it the perfect vessel for saucy mains and rich dishes.
This quintessential Swahili meal is Pilau. Hearty, savoury and incredibly aromatic, this rice dish is a staple and locals prefer a strong pungent garlic presence. If garlic is not something you enjoy, you can reduce the recipe to one clove.
