Spicy wors, buttery pap and a sweet tangy tomato gravy, an absolute classic South African Dish.

Today I’m sharing my recipe for this beautifully flavoured tomato gravy which just takes this classic meal to the next level.

Here’s how you can make it


30ml coconut oil

1 onion, chopped finely

5 tomatoes, chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon chilli flakes

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 tablespoons Mrs. Balls Chutney

1 tablespoon tomato paste

Salt to taste

Ground pepper to taste


1. Heat oil in a pot and fry onion until soft

2. Add the crushed garlic, chopped tomatoes, chilli flakes, sugar, chutney and tomato paste

3. Allow the tomato mixture to cook on a medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring every few minutes to ensure that it does not stick

4. Season to taste with salt and pepper
