    Kenyan beans

    Growing up my family didn’t have a lot of money, we had enough never to go hungry. I recall with great fondness the days my mum treated me to the Kenyan street food of madondo (beans) and soft chapatis, often as a lunch treat on school closing days.

    Moreover, she didn’t have extra money for fancy meals. This street food combination was relatively affordable, yet regardless of its price, my mum and I did enjoy the food heartily, while we caught up on the events we missed from each other’s lives in the three months when I was away in boarding school.
