South African Braaii
The unique flavours of braai - South Africa’s iconic BBQ…
Braai transcends cultural boundaries - it's so popular in South Africa that there's even a dedicated National Braai Day, when people come together around the open flames of the grill to celebrate their rich cultural heritage. Boerewors (or farmer’s sausages) are the sausage of choice for a braai - they’re flavoured with paprika, coriander, nutmeg, clove, mace, pepper and vinegar for a bit of tang.
Here we’re serving them as sausage patties inside fried breads known as vetkoek with a sweet apricot blatjang and a fiery hot sauce made with pili pili (or birdseye chillies). On the side the traditional accompaniments include a bean stew flavoured with curry powder known as chakalaka, potato salad, a carrot sambal salad and steaks with seasoned salt.
