Somalian Pilau Rice with Banana & Kachumbari recipe

Why will you pair Rice with Banana? The answer lies in the eating of this contrasting and suited combination of flavours and textures.

The aromatic and earthy flavour of the Pilau rice paired with the acidity from the Tomato Salad and sweet creamy nature of the Banana makes this Somalian Pilau Rice dish my new favourite meal.

Honestly the flavours were so good the spice blend made it to my collection of Spices to be launched tomorrow on
