Now that you’ve got your hands on your brand new Ibili Granite Frying Pan, why not take it for a test-drive with this scrumptious recipe, published with thanks to Saadiya October, one of our regular customers, who picked it up years ago on a trip to Kenya. Sweet and creamy with a rich onion flavour and a hint of spicy chilli, this is a guaranteed hit with guests when served with vegetable crudité, breadsticks or toasted pita wedges.
