SOMALIA; News and Food

Somalia was in the news today.

Its citizens gained a new President, Muhammed Abdullahi Famarjo, as a result of a recent electoral ballot.

We celebrate with them and wish them all the best, especially in this day and age when some nations don't seem to know if they are going backwards or forwards.

In tribute to them, today we shall be taking a look at a Somalian 'one pot rice and goat meat' dish.
Our chefs are Abdullahi and Leila of Xawaash Restaurant YouTube channel and they are resident in Canada.

A peculiar spice mix is used amongst other stand alone spices called 'Xawaash'. It is said to be highly aromatic. Forget coriander, parsley and other fresh herbs. A lot of dried seed or stick spices were used. See for yourself in the video above. It's always good to learn something new.

Somalia is preparing to go through a new experience too.🙏
