DIRECTIONS

  • Peel potatoes and dice. Put potatoes, water, salt, and oil in a pot and cook at a medium heat with the lid on until the potatoes are soft enough to mash.
  • Mash the potatoes in the pot. Stir in the cornmeal and cook the pap for about 15 minutes until done. It's good to use a wooden spoon to mix the pap every 5 minutes (Don't scrap the part that sticks to the pan- just leave it there and eat the soft part only).
  • Serve hot and enjoy the Pap with Chakalaka.
