Chakalaka is a South African relish made from vegetables (mainly tomatoes) onions, a mixture of spices, garlic and beans.

This spicy accompaniment originates from township cuisine and many shisa nyama lounges serve it with meat. It can also be enjoyed with pap, mash potatoes, boerewors and many other dishes. Due to its deliciously spicy, flavour-packed taste, it can also be used to add some 'voema' to a variety of dishes from stews to salads.  It's SA's own go-to condiment that tastes good with...anything!
