Categories     South Africa     Vegetarian     Cabbage     Tomato     Onion     Ginger     Coriander     Side

Number Of Ingredients 15

2 tablespoons canola oil
1 small yellow onion, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Jalapeño, stemmed and minced
1 tablespoon minced ginger
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed
1 small red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely diced
1 small yellow bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely diced
3 large carrots, coarsely grated
½ small green cabbage, finely chopped (about 3 cups)
One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons white vinegar or freshly squeezed lemon juice

Steps:

  • Warm the oil in a large Dutch oven or other heavy pot set over medium heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, jalapeño, and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the turmeric, cumin, coriander, and salt. Cook, stirring, just until the spices are wonderfully fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the bell peppers, carrots, cabbage, and tomatoes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, giving the mixture a stir every so often, until all the vegetables are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, about 30 minutes. Turn off the heat, stir in the vinegar, and season the chakalaka to taste with salt. Let the chakalaka cool to room temperature and season it to taste one final time. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week, then serve it either cold or at room temperature.

Provided by Hawa Hassan

Categories     Lunch     Sandwich     Cheese     Tomato     Cabbage     Quick & Easy     South Africa

Number Of Ingredients 5

2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 slices good-quality sandwich bread
¼ cup grated sharp white Cheddar cheese
¼ cup Chakalaka or any relish or chutney of your choice

Steps:

  • Set a cast-iron pan or other heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Spread 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise on one side of each slice of bread. Place one slice of bread mayonnaise-side down in the skillet and top it with half the cheese, then top with the chakalaka and onion.

CHAKALAKA (SPICY VEGETABLE RELISH)



Chakalaka (Spicy Vegetable Relish) image

Like chutney in India or salsa in Mexico, no one in South Africa prepares chakalaka, a spicy vegetable relish, the same way. And if you ask anyone who makes the best version, they will likely name their own mother or grandmother. Here is our version, full of vegetables and spices. It's akin to giardiniera (the Italian mix of pickled vegetables that includes cauliflower and carrots) and also to English piccalilli relish, whose roots are in South Asian pickled vegetables, which is to say that cultures all across the world have some version of preserved vegetables that enhance many meals. Serve the chakalaka with bread, rice, grilled meats or fish, stews...anything. It's particularly delicious with grilled sausages or tucked into a grilled cheese sandwich.
