Pap and tomato relish
Pap and tomato relish

1. Pap: Fill a medium-size pot with salted water and bring to the boil over medium heat. Measure 500ml (2c) mealie meal and lightly whisk into the water using a whisk (lefehlo) – whisk quickly to avoid the pap boiling over. Simmer for 10 minutes, then stir well with a wooden spoon or leho, adding the rest of the mealie meal and mixing well to ensure no lumps form. Reduce the heat, cover with a lid and cook over low heat for 15 minutes.

2. Using a wooden spoon, dish the pap in rounded scoops onto plates. The pap will stiffen as it cools.

3. Tomato relish: Heat the oil in a pot. Add the onion, garlic and curry powder, and fry until the onion is cooked. Add the tomatoes, sugar and salt to taste. Simmer for 20 minutes over medium heat.
