This is an awesome Kenyan delicacy that is eaten almost every day in many of the houses. This is also a very simple and delicious meal to make for the whole family. Enjoy

Ingredients:

  • cupful mung beans
  • cupfuls milk
  • medium sized onions
  • spoonfuls ghee or butter
  • 1/2 cupful cooking oil
  • salt and curry powder to taste

Method:

  1. Clean and wash mung beans. Place in pot, cover with water and boil until very tender.
  2. If more water needed, add only boiling water. Remove from heat and beat until smooth.
  3. It will turn into a paste. Put mung bean paste into a bowl and heat cooking oil in same pot.
  4. Clean and dice onions. Add onion to oil and fry until cooked and nicely brown.
  5. Return the mung bean paste to the pot and mix with onion.
  6. Add curry powder, salt and milk and simmer for 10 minutes.
  7. Add butter or ghee and simmer for another 5 minutes.

    I am making a venison roast which calls for onion soup mix, but i prefer to use fresh ingredients vs dried. Does anyone know how to substitute and make it taste the same?

    An exhibition for exhibiting rare vegetables and fruits around the world happened in Great Yorkshire, UK recently. Farmers around the world brough different kinds of rare sized vegetables and fruits in the exhibition. A 68-year-old man from New Jersey amazed everyone by displaying an 18 pounds weighed onion in the exhibition. He won the first pirze for his rare sized onion. It is noted that he was also the winner of last year’s exhibition for displaying a mega-size raddish grown on his field.

    Guys, this is my current level of English, Please tell me how am I doing, so then I could improve myself.

    I fancy treating myself to a slow cooker. I have a family of 5, what size do you reckon I should be looking at. Can I cook a whole chicken or a roast in one?

    I recently bought a little planter full of red onions. Do I plant them in the bunch or do I have to separate all the individual shoots?

    Im looking for some recipies for my wedding buffet, we want a hot buffet. I have a few ideas in mind, including, roast veggies in a sauce, garlic potatoes, mexican bean dish or any bean dish, chicken tikka bites, cocktail size onion bahjis, exotic fruit salad or fruit on sticks, hot sliced meats served with a bread basket.
    Hope someone can help, as im getting a friend to cater for me so its cheaper but i want something different rather than your usual sandwiches and gateau’s. If anyone has any of their own recipies in mind then please state. Some must be vegetarian though! thanks.

    I had not eaten all day… so I went to Burger King and order free ice cream, whopper, medium size onion ring, peach granola sundae, and a medium size drink (coke)…

    So I don’t understand how it got me so fat. Can’t be that much calories. I didn’t eat anything after that.

    Went home and sleep. Still fat tummy, ugh!!! And it has been 2 days.

    My girlfriend asked me to build a planter box for her. She would like to grow tomatoes, chili peppers, onions, garlic, and various herbs. She wants to grow all the things to make salsa.

    We live in southern new mexico in an area where the soil is pretty worthless for growing anything, so she asked me to build this. I know how to build it, but I have no idea how big to make it. Any ideas?

    What a carelessly written recipe.
    No measurements, just add “cupfuls” of ndengu, ‘cupfuls’ of milk, add “spoonfuls” of ghee….
    Is this a joke?
    Wake up you lazy incompetent one!!!
