I love a challenge and last year had an absolute blast with the Community Cookathon hosted by yuppiechef. So, I had to take part in this year’s Enkosi Cookathon, not only for the challenge, but because I love supporting yuppiechef.
Part of the challenge was to cook 7 dishes – and for me, where to start? Should I start with the bobotie:
or head straight for the dessert of melktert?
or even better, malva pudding!
However, I decided to start with the spicy chicken livers:
and followed this up with sugar free koeksisters – who knew the sugar free syrup would be as good as the real deal!
I followed this by cooking a lamb curry over two days:
being truly South African it is amazing I have never made phutu pap before. Sadly the given recipe for the pap and relish were not the best of the bunch and so what you see here is a BIG adaptation!
ps – all the dishes here represent my adaption of the recipes. I will post recipes slowly but surely for what I did. The word links will take you to the original recipes, which I adapted. And some of the photo’s already have links up as I have blogged the recipes already!
For the challenge I have recooked the first three dishes!

What a great roundup of lovely recipes Tandy.
thanks Mandy 🙂
Hi Tandy, all these dishes look amazingly good. What a rich culinary culture you have.
thank you so much – we are a rainbow nation indeed 🙂
This is sad– but I read the title and thought, “ooo- enoki mushrooms! what a fantastic idea!” as I learned to like mushrooms via enoki mushrooms. Your dishes are a better way to increase my culinary breadth though.
thanks for the visit! I love enoki mushrooms and use them weekly in my cooking 🙂
Sounds like a fun event!
it was a blast 🙂
So many of these are very unique to me, thanks so much for sharing!
my pleasure, it is always fun to learn something new 🙂
A diverse look at your cuisine…good luck in the challenge!
thanks so much Yvette 🙂
Great challenge! Would sell my mom for a bite of that Malva Pud! 🙂
I will have to send some over – would not want to see your mom sold 🙂
Good luck with the competition, I bet you will be the only one who did all 7 recipes! 🙂
sadly Sue a lot of bloggers have done all 7 so I have some stiff competition!
Thanks for taking part in our Cookathon, and for your ongoing support of Yuppiechef 🙂
it is my pleasure 🙂
Had to check out these dishes to see just what they involved–and all look so good! Especially all the spices. Mmm, the spices is Bobotie sound particularly delicious.
my bobotie recipe has a great depth of flavour 🙂
Well, Tandy! This challenge really appealed to me too, but I just didn’t have the time! I wanted to cook everything over a fire…. 😀
I type too fast – I meant ‘well done’, of course!!!!!
ha ha, I read too fast as well xxx
damn, that would have been awesome. and a winner I think!
How impressive. You certainly know how to rise to a challange. Some really amazing dishes there (and many new to me, so very exciting). Good luck to you!
I’m looking forward to those recipes. Especially the sugar free Koeksisters.
The first time I had Malva Pudding was in Canada, would you believe I didn’t know it? I wonder why it’s called Malva Pudding.
Fortunately I just saw the blog Award vote button down here 😉
Thanks Tok – I made a sugar free malva pudding which was sweet as can be – and I will have to do some research as to why it is called that! Have a great day 🙂
