Heritage braai- What to serve on the side

Everyone is geared for this weekend’s braai day and the meats are in the fridge ready to be braaied. I am one step ahead because I am also planning for the side dish.

Braaibroodjies, pap or roosterkoek…mmm… I think it is going to be pap-en-sous.

Here is a great pap and sauce (pap en sous)  recipe.


Add 3 cups of mielie pap to a cup of cold water until smooth, add another 3 cups and some salt. Place pot on stove and heat until the pap is hot. Add more water if necessary. Reduce heat and cook slowly for 1 hour stirring and adding more water (if necessary) every 10 minutes. Serve with sauce.


Grate an apple
Finely chop an onion
Crush two cloves of garlic
Finely chop one tomato
Fry in olive oil

Add 1 tablespoon of sugar, tomato sauce, 2 tablespoons soya sauce.
Add 1 can of chopped tomatoes
Flavour with salt and pepper
Cook until the onion is cooked and you have a thick sauce.

To serve: Place pap on plate, (wors optional)  and top with sauce.
