A traditional South African sticky treat that's deliciously sweet, sticky, crunchy and drenched in syrup. Try our koeksisters.

Mielie meal roti

Mielie meal roti

Now that you’ve tried your hand at making roti (ideally, you should make it at least 3 times before advancing to Mielie Meal roti), let me guide you through the steps of making this roti. This yields a super soft roti once toasted which has a soft and floury smell and texture. It is thinner than the traditional roti and best suited to eating with gravy curries like fish curry, yam or madumbi curry, banana curry or even on its own (as I prefer, with a cup of tea).
