Heat the oil in a big pot or potjie and fry the onion, garlic and celery. Add the meat and carrots.

Rinse the beans and add to the pot. Cover with 4 cups of water, bring to a boil and simmer for 90 minutes with the lid on.

Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for half an hour or until the beans are tender and the meat falls off the bone. Add more water if needed and season to taste.

Make the dumplings: Mix all the dry ingredients. Rub in the butter and stir in the milk and Peppadews until the mixture binds. Roll into balls.

Bring the bean soup to a boil and add the dumplings. Lower the heat, replace the lid and simmer over a low heat for 10 minutes – don’t let the bean soup boil.

TIP
: To ensure that the beans cook soft, always add the tomato and salt towards the end.
