Chakalaka a South African dish that could be salad or a chilli stewed beans. Depending on preference some say beans is not necessary to make chakalaka but majority of the recipes I have seen have got beans in them and for me that is just perfect as I love baked beans, the usual beans used in the preparation.
The recipe use very basic ingredients that you already have at home like onion, peppers, ginger root, garlic cloves and whatever herb or spices you may fancy, like thyme and curry powder.
This recipe is a completely meatless recipe but highly nutritious. Serve on toast for breakfast, pair with plantain, pap or rice for dinner. Suitable to accompany barbeques or simply have it on its own. The options on how serve this are endless.
