Pap is such a versatile side dish. It’s best served with something savoury, like chakalaka or meat like boerewors or a stew. But whatever way you and your family like to enjoy this South African staple is totally up to you.
- 3 cups of water
- ½ cup of cheddar cheese
- ¼ brick of Sunshine D margarine
- Pinch of salt
- 1 carrot, grated
- 2 cups D’LITE maize meal
Bring the 2 cups of water to boil in a pot on the stove.
Add the grated carrots and cheese to the boiling water.
Stir in the margarine and salt.
In a separate bowl, add the D’LITE maize meal and add 1 cup of cold water.
Stir into a thin paste and mix into the water/margarine mixture.
Reduce heat to medium and cover.
Leave for 10 minutes.
Remove the lid and stir vigorously for 1 minute.
Mash the pap against the side of the pot for about 2 minutes to get rid of lumps.
