Chakalaka


Chakalaka is a South African relish/sauce that is very popular especially with the ethnic population who are the authors of this amazing condiment. Some use it in stews, as a base, as the main ingredient or as a topping. We get to buy this amazing product in a can! But you can make yours at home and it only takes a few minutes. I like mine to be fine as I only use it as a condiment


1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp oil
1 garlic clove, puréed
1 tsp ginger paste
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 peri peri powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp turmeric
3 medium carrots, grated
1 cup cabbage, shredded
1 cup corn, frozen (optional)
1 cup peas, frozen (optional)
1 can tomato and onion mix
Salt and pepper to taste


1. Fry the onion in the oil until soft.
2. Add the ginger and garlic and fry for 1 minute.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes until the vegetables are cooked but not too soft.
4. Season with salt and pepper.
