In South Africa, Chakalaka is the relish that you bring to the barbecue. It is a spicy vegetable relish served with stews, bread or curries. A South African legend says that this very tasty dish was concocted by miners who worked in the gold mines around Johannesburg.
There are many variations of this meal but it is traditionally created with any vegetable on hand, tomatoes, baked beans, onion, ginger and garlic and a dash of spices like curry and bouillon powder. Do not forget to add some chili peppers for the spice.
