    Mike P.E SA's Note:

    This is an authentic South African dish that I learned from a friend of mine. It's easy to make and can be varied to your own taste. The secret is in the sauce's flavour. If you can get your hands on a 3 legged black pot (pootjie pot) as it is known in S.A., it will make a huge difference to the flavour. I have however made it on the stove in a normal pot and it tasted almost as good.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Select a deep pot (black pot if possible).
    2. 2
      Place oil in pot and bring to heat (not too hot).
    3. 3
      Add onions, green peppers, black peppers corns, garlic, bay leaves, mixed herbs, coriander, paprika, anise seeds and cinnamon bark.
    4. 4
      Once the onions are translucent and the mixture has formed a nice paste, add a bit of water and simmer for 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add your meat and mushrooms and cook for 45 minutes on medium heat (enough to bubble); make sure there is enough liquid.
    6. 6
      Add tomato paste, puree and sugar; stir well and let simmer for 40 minutes (do not add liquid after this point again, as it will take from the flavour).
    7. 7
      Add all the veggies except gem squash and cook for 20 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add gems (cut in half, seeds taken out, sprinkled with salt and white pepper inside and placed inside down).
    9. 9
      Simmer until gems are soft and sauce is thick (like a stew).
    10. 10
      Serve on rice.
