Yve’s Potjie Masala 100g

Potjie is a stew prepared outdoors. It is traditionally cooked in a round, cast iron, three-legged pot, the potjie.
Traditionally, the recipe includes meat, vegetables like carrots, cabbage, cauliflower or pumpkin, and starches like rice or potatoes, all slow-cooked with Dutch and Malay spices, the distinctive spicing of South Africa’s early culinary melting pot. Other common ingredients include fruits and flour-based products like pasta.
The potjie, with a bit of cooking oil inside, is placed on a fire until the oil has been sufficiently heated. Meat is added first, depending on the preference of the cook. This can be anything from lamb or pork to beef. The meat is spiced and often a form of alcohol is added for flavour – mostly beer, Old Brown Sherry or a dessert wine like Humbro.  When the meat is lightly browned, vegetables like potatoes and mealies (corn) are added, along with whatever spices are needed. Water or other liquids may or may not then be added, depending on the views of the potjie chef. The lid is then closed and the contents left to simmer slowly without stirring. This distinguishes a potjiekos from a stew that is stirred. The aim is that the flavours of the different ingredients mix as little as possible.
