Pilau is a delicacy typically cooked with rice and a stream of spices that are added to rice or fish preferably. The dish is believed to have originated in the Middle East Countries.

Pilau is one of the most delicious dishes on the planet and is also very easy to prepare at home. The ingredient needed to prepare Kenyan beef pilau are rice, ginger, garlic, onions, pilau masala and meat of your choice.

The amount of meat and rice to be cooked will be determined by the number of people or guests that will consume the meal.

The first step is to ensure that the onions are well sliced, the rice is well washed and then add a quarter teaspoon of salt to the garlic and ginger while crushing to prevent the concussion from spilling around the kitchen.

The next step is to place a clean sufuria in your heat source and add enough oil to cook. Let the oil burn for a few minutes until it makes a popping sound. Then add the onions while stirring until they turn golden brown. These will help the pilau to have a brown colour.

Ensure the onions do not overcook and add water immediately after they turn golden brown. Then add the meat together with the concussion of ginger and garlic. The concussions will help to tenderize the meat and give the food a sweet aroma. Cook for approximately 15 minutes to ensure that the meat is well cooked.

After that, add rice to the sufuria and double the amount of water as compared to the amount of rice added. It will help to cook the rice nicely. Then add the pilau masala to the cooking food to boost the taste of the food. Lastly, add salt and let it cook until there is no water in the sufuria.


Then serve the Kenyan pilau food to your family or guests. The food can be served with bananas.
