Here’s a fantastic dumpling recipe to compliment a braai.


2 cups of water

2 tbsp Maize meal

1 tsp salt

2 cups flour

2 tsp Baking powder

2 cups of grated cheddar cheese

2 eggs



Boil the water in a saucepan, then add the maize meal and stir vigorously. Simmer for 20 minutes until cooked and allow it to cool.

Beat the eggs into the mixture.

Add the flour, Baking powder, cheese and mix well.

Spoon teaspoonfuls into deep hot oil (not boiling hot otherwise they will not cook completely and just burn) and fry until nice and brown. They’ll turn over half way by themselves.

Dry with kitchen towel and sprinkle Aeromat once the oil has drained.

It’s simple and delicious. Have fun!
