Mzanzi Food

I am interested to hear from people who want to share their true South African recipies with me...

Does anyone want to try Pens And Pootjies Aka Tripe and Trotters?

Here's One:

8pig's trotters or sheep's trotters and a tripe (optional)300gsugar beans, rinsed and soaked overnight25mlvinegar5mlwhite sugar2cloves5mlground coriander5mlallspice1large onion, sliced20mlmedium curry powder10mlturmericfresh coriander, roughly chopped, to garnish

Cover trotters with salted water and soak for one hour. Drain. Drain sugar beans and simmer in fresh water to cover for 45 minutes or until tender. Cool in the water. Cover trotters with plenty of fresh cold water and cook until tender, about 45 minutes. Remove trotters and dice, retaining liquid. Return meat and add all other ingredients to stock, except beans. Simmer covered for about 45 minutes. Season. Drain beans. Put in a warm serving dish and pour curry over. Garnish with coriander and serve with rice. (This dish will improve if cooked in advance.)

Would love to hear your version.
