Method

± 45 min
 
Mix all the ingredients for the tomato sauce together and heat slowly until warmed through. Set aside. Mix all the ingredients for the maize meal strips together. Heat a little butter or oil in a skottel braai and drop small quantities of the batter in the skottel braai. Cook till air bubbles form on top, turn over and fry until pale brown, as you would for crumpets. Remove from the pan and cut into strips. Stir-fry the meat, brains and garlic in the same skottel until done. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Add extra oil and the meat stock, if necessary. Mash the brains with a fork and move the meat to the outer edge of the skottel. Stir-fry the vegetables untill done but still crisp, add the meat and maize strips and mix. Heat for about a minute before adding the tomato sauce. Mix well. Mix the maize rice with the butter and spoon into a greased flat dish. Spoon the meat mixture on top, sprinkle with the cheese and heat over boiling water which has been added to the skottel. Serve with finely crushed corn bites. Serves 4.
