    Enjolinfam's Note:

    This is a staple food in South Africa as well as other parts. My amaXhosa friend, Ntombizanele Sokupa, gave this recipe to me. She eats this with Pap -Pap (Potatoes and Cornmeal), but says it can also be enjoyed as a side dish with meat or vegemeat or with bread. Thanks Zanele!

      This is a great stir fry - loved the combination of the curry and chili powder. Made as posted, served over rice for a perfect evening meal! Used the green chilies for the extra wow.

      Excellent and healthful! I served this with the pap, which was starchy and exactly what this dish needed. A perfect pair! I also left out the green chilies, but added a heaping teaspoon chili powder and curry powder (even though I halved the overall recipe). Thanks! Reviewed for ZWT:D

      I thought this was pretty good, especially with the pap. The husband and children didn't seem to agree with me though. I thought that the veggies were a little bland, even though I used quite a bit of curry, salt, and pepper, so I added some berbere seasoning to spice it up. I love that it was fast and easy.
