This is a recipe that was given to me by an old friend in South Africa many years ago. The first time I tasted it I was absolutely amazed by the flavour and to this day nothing has changed. It is such an easy to make recipe that manages to capture a taste of the excellence of African cuisine at it's simplest and but very best. Enjoy Chalalaka as a side to barbequed meat, Its also great on its own with a buttered bread roll. Ukonwabele ukutya kwakho
