Surinamese Bami

I should really call this Javanese bami because that’s what it is. Thing is, in the Netherlands we call this brown, spicy and totally addicting noodle dish Surinaamse Bami, so I’ll stick to that. Never change a winning team, right? Now this is a very basic noodle dish that is mainly eaten as a side dish. Kinda like rice. Sure, you can liven it up by adding pieces of chicken…

BB & R Suri-Style

Let’s spice up those boring cans of brown beans that are now collecting dust in your pantry! Seriously, nothing screams autumn more than a big pot of simmering beans on the stove, right? Now let’s raise the bar and kick it up a notch and turn them into a Surinamese-style brown beans and rice dish that will blow you away. Not literally, of course, only in a good way. Unless…

Curry Masala Mayonnaise

Really simple but incredibly versatile recipe that everyone should keep in their fridge for easy access. This is a basic, fragrant Surinamese masala mayonnaise with a flavour intensity that will be love at first bite if you’re a curry masala addict, like me.

Mama’s Herbed Chicken

Here’s a recipe my love got from his co-worker; Michael. Actually, this Surinamese herbed chicken recipe belongs to Michael’s mom. He’d been raving about it so much that I just had to have it! Never rave about a recipe and then not give it to me, that’s exceptionally cruel. Plus, and this is a biggie; Kay + Surinamese food = match made in heaven. Got it in the mail, had…

Surinamese Egg Salad

You’d almost think it’s Surinam week on Kayotic Kitchen, after I posted my Surinamese Pepper Jelly earlier this week. Nope, pure happenstance, but in my world it would not be a bad thing if it was Surinam month. Or year, even! It’s by far my favorite food. Now, as much as I adore my country egg salad (forgive the bad photography for I knew not what I was doing), I’m…

Surinamese Fish Masala

Simple dishes are always best, right? This tasty Surinamese fish masala recipe uses only basic ingredients, plus—and this is a biggie to me—you have it on the table in roughly 15 minutes. What more could you ask for? Now I have to say that I love anything curry—it’s by far my favourite spice to work with—and I especially use lots of it with fish and chicken. Somehow it gives the…
