  •  1/2 cup chakalaka
  •  30 g butter, cold and cubed

How to

  • Using your hands, rub the butter into the dry mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the buttermilk and chakalaka and cut the mixture with a knife or palette knife until the mixture starts combining and forms a dough.
  • Knead the dough lightly in the bowl for 2 minutes and divide into golf-ball-sized portions.
  • Roll out each portion of dough into a long strip and twist around clean sticks or thick skewers.
  • Braai the “stokbrood” over an open flame until cooked through and slightly charred. Be sure to rotate while it is cooking.
