Recipe by GT in SA

Another traditional South African dish, derived from the spicy cuisine of Malay slaves brought to the Cape of Good Hope by Dutch colonialists. Do not be put off by the list of ingredients, preparation is really quite simple and not at all time-consuming. The end result is well worth the effort.
