Local is lekker: 6 of our favourite South African dishes to try this month

Ah, South Africa. It’s a melting pot of cultures that has resulted in myriad tantalising local dishes. From spicy Cape Malay curries to pap en vleis, dombolo and more, it’s impossible to narrow down South African dishes to just one favourite.



It’s the dish that signifies chaotic Sunday lunches: family banter, kids playing, third helpings and the obligatory doggie bag.

South African dishes - tamatiesmoor

What’s a boerie roll without a wholesome helping of tangy smoor? This easy tamatiesmoor is quick to prep, but best left simmering for as long as possible.

South African dishes - dombolo

These dumplings are made using half mielie meal and half cake flour for a grittier texture. Add a cup of drained canned corn kernels for something a little different.
