    PanNan's Note:

    This stew-like dish is supposed to be an authentic South African recipe. It was posted on 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 a confession, I have made this recipe many times before - not this recipe, but I have a recipe myself - and this is VERY similar! I love this SA stew type meal, we enjoyed it with fresh squash and courgettes, as well as mashed potatoes! I also added some carrots and a dollop of Mrs Ball's Mango Chutney for a little lift! Thanks Nan - a great recipe - a keeper for us! Photos to follow. Made for ZWT4 - FT:-)

      This is very good. It was easy to make. The only change I made was that I don't like cooked tomatoes, so I added them about half way through the cooking time. This was made for ZWT 4-Africa It was made for the Cafe ZmaKK Gypsies. Thanks sister gypsy for posting this recipe.
