My first ever encounter with Pilipili ya Kukaanga was when I tried a coastarian street food,I loved the tanginess of the sauce and really enjoyed. They are well known for their spicy, fragrant and yummy Swahili cuisines. From bhajia, biryani, achari, mabuyu, mahamri, pilau, samosa, pilipili ya maembe.

Pilipili ya kukaanga is simply a delicious chili sauce that is used to accompany dishes like Pilau, Biryani among other delicious Coastal delicacies.This is my simpler version but you can get as detailed as you like, you can add different spices, herbs, and vegetables like bell peppers. Anything goes but the chillies are what is constant, so it depends how hot  you want it to be!
