Chakalaka African Spice

Chakalaka is an essential South African condiment that can be served with everything from pap (similar to polenta) to crusty bread, stews, and braaied (barbecued) meat. Said to have originated with Mozambican mineworkers in Johannesburg, Chakalaka is typically made with a blend of beans, carrots, onion, peppers, and tomato sauce. Some versions include cabbage or butternut squash, but all are characterized by a signature spicy seasoning made with crushed chiles and fragrant spices.

Ingredients: onion, red bell pepper, garlic, sea salt, turmeric, mustard, crushed chiles

Uses: A great seasoning for any cooked vegetable medley but also great to apply to meats before roasting.
