Chakalaka is an essential South African condiment that can be served with everything from pap (similar to polenta) to crusty bread, stews, and braaied (barbecued) meat. Said to have originated with Mozambican mineworkers in Johannesburg, chakalaka is typically made with a blend of beans, carrots, onion, peppers, and tomato sauce. Some versions include cabbage or butternut squash, but all are characterized by a signature spicy seasoning made with crushed chiles and fragrant spices.
Chakalaka is a spicy South African relish that goes with everything but is especially great with barbecue, or braai as it’s known in South Africa. Chakalaka is light, mildly spicy, and super easy to make thanks to our Chakalaka Spice.
