    • Um. I think you mixed up your flours in the bhajias. The yellow thing is chickpea flour and the white thing is rice flour.

    • Because of Indian influence in many East African countries :). I’m from Tanzania and it’s the same there. We eat chapati too which here in America since I’m lazy to make it, I just go get them at an Indian store. Tastes good!

    • @Roz Qr actually yeah that’s true, since we have such a large population of Indians in Kenya due to colonialism, to the point where indians/Asians are considered one of the many ethnic groups of Kenya and many east African coastal countries

      Omni void August 10, 2020 6:50 am Reply
    • @reshi p you’re misinformed, who even mentioned maru bhajia? Read exactly what I wrote in both my replies. & Kenya isn’t only Nairobi, that Indian introduced bhajia to the locals in nairobi a mere 600sqkm but coastal Kenya has people who’ve been preparing most of the dishes seen in the video & others since before the 19th century.

      Get it now slowpoke?

    • @Gloria Sarah black indians ? 99.9% Indians are brown race.There is a very small black community in India brought by Arab traders but they have their own food and culture .that doesnt mean Indian culture and food belongs to black people .By that logic anyone can claim any food in the world’s
