    Sharon123's Note:

    Boom chakalaka! Born in the townships(probably Johannesburg) of South Africa(Sub-Saharan Africa), chakalaka is a simple, spicy dish of onions, tomatoes and often beans. It has been a staple for generations of black South Africans, and is a required condiment at South African braais, or barbecues. Chakalaka can be served hot or cold, over mealie pap, with slices of bread, or as a condiment for grilled meats. Adapted from whats4eats.
