If you’re having the family around this Heritage Day, why not celebrate with a South African classic? We’ve paired some of our favourites with side dishes to feed a crowd.
Curry + carrot salad
On cooler spring days, nothing beats a hearty curry. Need some inspiration? Check out our top 10 curry recipes. Whether you opt for chicken, prawn, mince or vegetable curry, carrot salad lends a hit of acidity and freshness to any fiery curry. To save time, make yours using McCain Carrots Julienne.
Bobotie + McCain Savoury Rice
There is something quintessentially South African about the blend of sweet apricot jam or chutney, fragrant curry spices and egg topping. Bobotie takes time and patience, so you don’t want to have to worry about cooking a side dish at the same time. Instead, serve it with McCain Savoury Rice, cooked from frozen. Parboiled rice is mixed with carrots, peas and sweetcorn for a flavourful, healthy side that is ready in minutes.

Whether you’re throwing boerewors on the fire or experimenting with harissa lamb chops or peri-peri chicken, nothing says summer quite like braai meat and potato salad. And, if you use McCain Diced Potato, you can spend more time relaxing at the fire – simply cook it from frozen and mix it with mayonnaise, parsley and whatever else takes your fancy for a quick, delicious salad.
Roast chicken + umfino
Everyone knows the perfect Sunday includes a long lunch consisting of a delicious, crispy roast with all the trimmings. If you’re looking for a new take on roast chicken and potatoes, try this easy chicken with garlic and apricot or this red masala chicken and serve it with delicious umfino, made using McCain Diced Potato and Garden Spinach.
