Recipes from Southern Africa: Chakalaka

Chakalaka is one of the most South African dishes. The spicy vegetable relish, which may have originated in the townships of Johannesburg, is traditionally served with meat, pap, bread or stews. There is no fixed recipe for a Chakalaka; Chef Jodi-Ann Pearton's version in the video below is one of the countless variations of the dish. Enjoy! Kudos Jodi-Ann Pearton and Darling Lama Productions!

  • 3 chopped onions
  • 3 grated carrots
  • 2 chopped green peppers
  • 3 chopped tomatoes
  • 50ml tomato paste
  • 100ml oil
  • 45ml curry powder*
  • 5ml tumeric
  • 15g salt & pepper
  • 1 chopped green chili
  • 5g chili powder
  • 125ml water
*it seems that 45ml curry are equivalent to 3 tablespoons
