Ugandan samosas are a nationwide popular and very common snack food. They are an African “fast food” that you can buy at kiosks on the side of almost any road. They are delicious, and quite inexpensive to make.

Ugandan Samosas can be made with or without meat. The most common meat used is beef. Vegetarian or not, they are always delightfully spiced and seasoned mixture of veggies, wrapped in a thin sheet of pastry, and then baked until golden brown and crispy.

I am in a never ending search for unique, exotic, and little known foods from ethnic cultures around the world. This search includes finding the best ever superfruit. In doing so, I stumbled onto this amazing fruit that grows on the majestic, indigenous to North Africa, Baobab Tree.

The Baobab tree (common name for the 9 species of trees in the genus Adansonia) looks like a giant, standing alone, high above the shrubbery in vast plains. And they are, indeed, very large trees. Adansonias often attain heights of nearly 100 feet and the diameters of their monolithic trunks will grow as large as 36 feet.

Immensely popular in Africa, particularly in the northern regions, Baobab fruit has been the planet’s “best kept secret”, when it comes to healthy foods, for centuries. I did some Google searches for keywords such as:

German Gurkensalat

Gurkensalat German Cucumber Salad

Gurkensalat is what we in America know as Cucumber Salad. It is originally from Germany, and we owe it to German immigrants who, long ago, brought this, one of their favorite dishes, with them. It soon became popular in the States, especially in the south.

Gurkensalat

There are two classic versions of Gerkensalat, One has a creamy sauce, made with sour cream in it, and the other is a lighter version. This recipe is the lighter version, although I do include the optional garnishes of a dollop of sour cream and a cherry tomato.

While there are of course many slight variations on the traditional recipe, this one is my personal favorite. If you are preparing an authentic German meal of Weiner Schnitzel, this makes for a perfect and traditional side dish.

English Bangers and Mash is also a South African favorite; they developed a taste for the dish during Great Britain’s 100+ years of Imperial rule. But this is the original, authentic and traditional British version – English Bangers and Mash. It is also very often served with green peas (as seen in the picture) so feel free to add some freshly steamed peas to the dish before serving, if you like.

Prawns ya Pilau (“Prawns with Rice”) is a national Tanzanian favorite dish. Many cultures have rice and seafood dishes, however, how the rice is prepared is where there is usually an ethnic distinction.

In Tanzania, heavily spiced, rich with unique-to-Africa spices and herbs rice is what really sets this dish in a class of its own. And trust me, Prawns ya Pilau, Tanzanian style, is super delicious!
