Chakalaka & Pap

Thought I would share what I'm making tonight!

Chakalaka (South African Vegetable Stir-Fry)


* 3 medium onions, diced
* 3 medium carrots, diced
* 2 medium green bell peppers, diced
* 3 medium tomatoes, diced
* curry powder, to your taste
* salt, to taste
* pepper, to taste
* green chilies (optional)
* 1 vegetable bouillon cube
* 1 teaspoon chili powder
* 1-2 tablespoon oil, for frying
* 1/4 cup water

Fry the onion and pepper together with oil in a large skillet until the onion is clear.

Add the grated carrots, tomatoes, water, and all the seasonings to your liking and cook for about 15-20 minutes.

Pap (Potatoes and Cornmeal)


* 2-3 cups cornmeal (I use 2 cups only but you may use more if you have really large potatoes)
* 3-4 cups water
* 3 potatoes
* 1 tablespoon oil
* 1 tablespoon salt

Peel potatoes and dice. Put potatoes, water, salt, and oil in a pot and cook at a medium heat with the lid on until the potatoes are soft enough to mash.

Mash the potatoes in the pot. Stir in the cornmeal and cook the pap for about 15 minutes until done. It's good to use a wooden spoon to mix the pap every 5 minutes (Don't scrap the part that sticks to the pan- just leave it there and eat the soft part only).

Serve hot and enjoy the Pap with Chakalaka
