    This South African dish keeps well in the refrigerator for up to a week. The fish is cooked first, and then pickled. It's served cold with a green salad and crisp rolls. The source is Africhef.com. and it's slightly modified.

    I discovered this South African recipe on the www.funkymunky.co.za/african.html site Chef Zee recommended. I'm posting it for the World Tour, and haven't tried it yet myself, but it looks delicious. I modified it slightly. Serve these hot with meat or fish stew (called potjie in South Africa).

    This recipe from Mozambique is posted for the World Tour 2005. I haven't had time to try it yet, but know we'll enjoy it soon. The source is The Africa Cookbook - Tastes of a Continent by Jessica B. Harris. Note: the term pili pili refers to the hot chile. This recipe does require marinade time which is not included in the time listed.

    This is posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. I haven't tried this particular recipe from Senegal yet, but I've often eaten something very similar for breakfast, although here it is a dessert. It's from The Africa Cookbook - Tastes of a Continent by Jessica B. Harris.

    This stew-like dish is supposed to be an authentic South African recipe. It was posted on www.funkymunky.co.za/african.html. Chef Zee introduced me to the site. I'm posting it for the Zaar World Tour, and haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure I will soon. I modified it just slightly. Simple recipes where you can taste the goodness of fresh ingredients are among my favorites. Chef Zee sent me the following suggestions. I'll leave the recipe as it stands, but feel free to try her suggestions for adding the "oomph" to this dish. "Usually in such honest recipes the flavour comes from the chicken, which would probably be free-run, organic ones, and stewed a long time. Such food always has a deliciousness which has nothing to do with ingredients. But if one uses a pale supermarket chicken, it would need more "oomph"!! I suggest you edit the recipe and add 1/2 teaspoon or more sugar with the tomatoes, chuck in some fresh or dried thyme, some garlic, and suggest a good seasoning salt — this will perk it up no end!"

    I have not tried this side dish yet but I am longing to do so . The recipe was in Sunday Life. Apparently koushary is commonly sold as street food in Egypt and often includes tomato and lentils.

    This is one of the most outstanding toppings for fish fillets. It does not overpower the fish, and tastes absolutely great. The recipe is from a very popular South African cookbook writer, Lynn Bedford Hall. I cannot count how often I've made this topping -- regardless of how the fish was prepared. But I give her recipe with a few tiny adjustments. This is for people who do not like fish!! Read the recipe before you start. It's quick and easy.

    I do not know where the "bee-sting" comes from, but this is a very popular cake in local home industries: those little shops filled with the specialties of good home cooks. This cake takes a little time, but it is worth it: it is cut into thin layers, which is spread with a custard filling. It's a delectable cake! Prep time is a guess! Please note that the custard filling can be made ahead, even the day before, and refrigerated. This cuts down on preparation time.

    A simple shrimp (prawn) recipe with a leaning towards the tandoori style. Use the largest shrimp you can get, and sea-fresh shrimps are always better tasting than farmed shrimp. But if beggars can't be choosers, the spice in this recipe will make any shrimp or prawn taste great! (Edited on 21 Oct 2010)

    POSTED FOR ZWT 4. A vegetarian main dish from Zanzibar, which is part of Tanzania. I am uncertain about cooking and prep times!! The recipe was written down by Troth Well. It is served with vegetables and rice, sometimes with Jollof Rice. As usual I had to guess prep times and did not include the possible preparation of the black-eyed peas (or beans).

    In South Africa "fruit salad" means something a little different from most American recipes. A definitive recipe does not exist: you use what fruits you have, and in summer and fall the choice is enormous. This is a healthy, simple way to end any meal, whether humble or grand. Serve with ice cream, sweet whipped cream or custard, or plain, as it comes. Please read extra notes in Directions. Prep time and servings are a wild guess, as it will depend entirely on the fruits you choose and how much salad it will actually be: weights cannot be specified for papayas and melons (cantaloupes)!

    This is an old traditional South African snack, simple and easy to make, and well worth trying as people seem to love them. The Afrikaans name is "Wasgoedbondeltjies", translated in the title! In these modern times I'd serve them with a bowl of Thai Sweet Chilli sauce as a dip. Please note that you can choose which pastry to use -- soda water pastry or puff pastry -- so you can either deepfry them, or bake the puff pastry bundles in the oven.

    This is more delicious than the sum of its parts! It's a real traditional oldie. RETESTED ON 22 Oct 07: After reading the reviews, I have just made this again. I cut down a little on the sugar in the sauce (it was 5 oz originally), but it should actually be a sweet pudding!! The sauce was quite enough to moisten the entire pudding -- it should not be dripping with sauce, as you can see in the photographs. Do not serve immediately, but let it stand, keeping warm, to give the sauce a chance to soak in properly. Real cold-weather comfort food. It's rich, so a little goes a long way, and this pudding yields up to 6 servings. This winter you must try this!
