Now here is a change to the ordinary Braai pap try pap Dumplings

Maize Meal Braai Dumplings

This is a very South African dumpling and it’s fabulous!!

Make slap-pap like a true South African:

2 cups water

2 TBSP Maize meal

1tsp salt

Boil the water in a saucepan, then add the maize meal and stir vigorously.

Simmer for 20 minutes until cooked.

Allow to cool while you have a drink a beer or three

Beat 2 eggs into pap

Add 2 cups flour

2tsp Baking Powder

2 cups of grated Cheddar cheese

Mix well

Spoon teaspoonfuls into deep hot oil (not boiling hot otherwise they will not cook completely and just burn) and fry until brown.

They’ll turn over half way by themselves… very cute!!

Dry with kitchen towel

Sprinkle Aeromat once the oil has drained.

Divine with a braai! and a nice Tomato and Onion Gravy
