This sauce is served with Phutu pap ( a firm maize porridge similar to polenta) at braais ( barbeques) in South Africa. It super easy to make but also delivers in taste. It is served hot with the Putu but is also fantastic when eaten with fresh buttered bread. Definitely worth trying. Lekker eet.
  • Very ripe tomatoes – five to six ( chopped)
  • Onions – two medium ( chopped)
  • Garlic - two cloves ( finely chopped)
  • Vegetable oil – five tablespoons
  • Salt – one teaspoon
  • Chilli flakes – for seasoning
  1. Heat the oil in a skillet
  2. Add onions and fry until they begin to change colour
  3. Add the Chillies and garlic. Fry for a minute
  4. Now add the tomatoes
  5. Turn down the heat and gently fry the tomatoes until soft
  6. You are looking for a thick sauce, with most of the moisture from the tomatoes having been cooked out.
  7. Taste for spiciness. Add Chilli flakes to the required taste if a spicier sauce is preferred
