Potatoes and eggs are a comfort food prepared all over the world. This popular Kenyon dish uses crisp French fries and eggs spiced with chili paste for a warm and filling meal. There are as many variations of this dish as there are street vendors and home cooks preparing it. Details
Ugandan cuisine has a lot in common with the cuisine of West African nations, with glimpses of British, Indian, and Arabic influences.

This month’s recipes are from Bangladesh and were supplied by Sabita Rakshit, a friend of mine who grew up in the southern region close to the coast. With fish being readily available, she said most meals would include a fish and rice dish accompanied by various daals (lentil stew) and vegetables. Breakfast was usually Luchi aloo dum. Luchi is deep fried flat bread and aloo is potato – basically, thick gravy made with potatoes and some green peas added. Details
