BAGIA DENGU || SWAHILI STYLE

Story…Story, I remember back in  primary school there was some good looking ‘bagias’ being sold during break time but I only had to eat them with my eyes since we (my siblings and I) weren’t allowed to eat street food  due to a number of health reasons our parents particularly dad gave us. Best believe me, my siblings could enjoy themselves but still I wasn’t, I never wanted to betray my dad and because of that I had lots of ‘What ifs’ hunting and limiting me to do so. What if I get sick? What if they find out I ate street food from school? Etc etc however there are couple of street foods I ate, I had to find a way to break the rule and eat out (story for another day)

Then I came at work, my colleague’s day wouldn’t have been complete without bagia dengu for his morning breakfast & that’s the moment I started to enjoy bagia dengu at some point.  And then came a thought of why not taking this street food home and have the best moment with my family.

Here it is Ladies and Gents, Bagia Dengu as prepared by yours truly, now grab that apron and let’s create the magic.

What  I did

  • Mix all the listed ingredients together in a bowl, then add water as you whisk it  until it’s thick enough
  • Now keep the mixture in warm place for sometimes until it ferments

Later;

  • Add oil in the pan
  • Start adding drops of the dengu mixture into the pan
  • Cook both sides until golden brown

 And boy, we made it! See how easy everything went.  Let me tell you, I wouldn’t mind to spend 12hrs straights in the kitchen cooking or organizing things, as long as it includes a kitchen, that’s my zone and I’m happy there. But every time I prepare my recipes I’m also trying to consider you guys, I know it’s a night mare to some  people to spend just 45 minutes in the kitchen so that’s why Catherine is always here to assist you with best recipes for less time. BINGO!

Well, we just made our bagia dengu. Case is, that’s the end of this meal but  nop, noT with Catherine. They enjoy their bagia dengu as they are , either with tea or soda. But I thought? What if I spice things a lot more? And therefore I decided to prepare some perfect chachandu for these bagia dengu.
