    Stacky5's Note:

    This is a traditional South African recipe, which comes from the great culinary tradition of the Cape Malays -- originally brought in as slaves in the 17th century. It's easy and plain, but great with meats like venison, corned beef tongue or any meat with gravy. Recipe courtesy of Allrecipes. Posted for Zaar World Tour II.

      Very good and tasty but on the adventurous side... very different Your guests will either love it or hate it...so be ready :) I personally love it but I am not afraid to try something new. The next time, I would decrease the sugar to 2 Tablespoons and maybe go for 1 teaspoon of turmetic only because it is very strong.

      My Wife and Daughter enjoyed this, it was my turn to cook so I gave this a shot with along with a nice butter chicken recipe I found. <br/><br/>The sugar though is way too much. 1 Tbls will be plenty. It was just too sweet and killed the flavor of the other items. I also had trouble "fluffing" as it turned out to be pretty claggy, but perhaps that is just me as a guy trying to cook.
