#WFD- Chakalaka

Photo: What's for Dinner

POLOKWANE – Chakalaka is a vegetable relish, usually spicy, that is traditionally served with bread, pap, samp, stews, or curries.

To balance its fiery flavour, it is sometimes served with amasi (thick sour milk).

Chakalaka may have originated in the townships of Johannesburg or on the gold mines surrounding Johannesburg, when Mozambican mineworkers coming off shift cooked tinned produce (tomatoes, beans) with chili to produce a spicy relish with a Portuguese flair to accompany pap.


  1. 150ml sunflower oil
  2. 1 large onion, diced
  3. 2 green peppers, diced
  4. 20ml hot curry powder
  5. 4 large carrots, peeled and grated
  6. 6 large tomatoes, grated
  7. 2 small red chillies, finely chopped
  8. 450g baked beans in tomato sauce
  9. 1 x KNORR Vegetable Stock Pot
  10. 5ml peri peri powder
  11. 5ml aromat


  1. Warm the sunflower oil in a pot over a medium heat
  2. Add your onions and green pepper and fry until soft then add the curry powder and fry for 1 minute to release the flavor and aroma
