Raining! Raining! and Raining!...........It's a blessing as well as a drawback for me. To wake up early in the morning has become a big challenge for me. Apart from the hustle and bustle of dropping and picking kids from school,  power issues. Power cuts has become a true headache. Even with the heavy rains there is shortage of water supply....ok. A week of no power and 5 days of no water situation in my house last week.  Obviously cooking came to a stand still. So far  this week is going on good, and hopefully the whole week too.Now let's forget all of  these issues and try something yummy today.


Minced mutton- 250 gms

Ginger- garlic paste- 1 tspn

Chilly powder- 1 tspn

Garam masala- 1 tspn

Turmeric powder- a pinch

Finely chopped onion- 1 tbspn

Coriander and mint leaves- 1 tbspn (very finely chopped)

Nutmeg powder- one pinch

Fennel seed powder- one pinch

Corn flour- 1 tspn

lemon juice- few drops

Salt to taste

Red, yellow, green peppers and onion sliced to one inch size to grill with the kebabs.


Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix uniformly. If you are washing the mutton mince make sure you remove all the excess water completely as this would cause problems in shaping the kebabs.

Shape the kebabs in the skewers with the peppers and onion as shown in the picture below.

Grill under medium fire by turning on both the sides taking care not to burn the kebabs. Drizzle little oil on both the sides and cook until done.

Serve with salad, lemon wedges and chutneys of your choice.

If you are super lazy to cook this yummy kebabs,  place your order for"Mutton seekh kebab" with and enjoy it during the rainy days in Nairobi.

With this weather you  wouldn't even think of going out and eat. To drive and that too in this traffic. Errrhh! it is better to stay home and just place an order through "hellofood" in just 3 steps.

Choose the area, restaurant and order and they deliver your food at your doorsteps. That's simply amazing. Do not worry if you do not have your restaurant listed there. Just send a request like I did and they would contact them and get your food delivered. I have just sent a request to add my restaurant.

In case of any queries, online chat is also available. There are sometimes we would feel like taking  a break from cooking and that too by the time I realise, that I do not wanna cook anything it would be 8 p.m, and then to get ready, get out of the house with's really tiring.

I like the services they offer especially for the busy people of Nairobi. The concept is really new and very helpful for people like my husband who hates going out unless and until we 3(me and my kids) push him to do so. He would always prefer a take away. After a tiring whole week of work anyone would opt to do so.

So next time you wanna stay home and relish your food after a tiring day just place your orders through"hellofood" and relax.
