Kariakoo, a district in Dar, also happens to have one of the largest markets in the city where all sorts of wares are sold. It is a bustling and vibrant market with food vendors vying for your patronage and hawkers trying to convince you that you need a new belt or sandals or kitchen utensils. There is no better way to know a city and its people than through its markets! This visit culminated in the purchase of lots of beautiful fruits and vegetables that later found their way in a vegetable pilau, a dish that is also commonly found in East Africa. Interestingly enough, the confluence of both Indian and African cultures, with generations of Indian migrants calling EA their home, has created a beautiful mix of culinary traditions. My next posts will definitely include one of my favourite foods: Nyama Choma! Stay tuned 😉
