Recipe of the Month

Our recipe this week is Chakalaka.  This was made by our lovely volunteer Lesley at the Refugee week ‘pop up’ cafe event yesterday at St Rollox church.  This recipe is a dish from South Africa although it was shared with Lesley by a lovely lady from Zimbabwe.  It is very popular there.  This dish is also very popular in Springburn.  Thanks for sharing the recipe.
