Ons “pof op” vir Superrugbyseisoen

Posted in *Traditional/Ethnic/Cultural Recipes

RUSTENBURG HERALD - RUSTENBURG - Met die Superrugby-reeks wat pas weer begin het en vir die meeste Suid-Afrikaanse spanne wat 'n uitstekende begin gehad het deur feitlik al hul wedstryde teen oorsese spanne te wen (behalwe die Bulle) is Vrydae- en Saterdae vir die volgende klompie maande 'n opwindende tyd.
Lekker rugby voor die TV met 'n eet- en drinkdingetjie in die hand of naby is darem nie te versmaai nie. Des te meer as jy 'n ekstra geldjie kan bespaar deur jou eie eetgoedjies te maak - wie weet - dalk kom 'n klompie vriende oor en jy het darem 'n ietsie lekkers om voor te sit.
Mnr Kleinboet Boonzaaier van Rustenburg is al goed bekend vir die lekkernye/happies/heerlike eetgoed wat hy op betreklik gevorderde ouderdom voorberei.

Sy jongste verrassing is die sogenaamde poffertjies wat skynbaar by almal byval vind. Oom Kleinboet maak sy poffertjies soos volg:


Poffertjies

Bestanddele:

500 g bruismeel (self raising flower)
½ teelepel sout
1 blikkie bier
1 blikkies boeliebeef
olie

Metode:

Gooi die meel in 'n mengbak, en voeg 'n knippie sout by. Krummel die beef met 'n vurk of mes in die meel. Roer in die meel in. Neem 'n goeie slukkie bier uit jou blikkie/botteltjie - anders is die meel 'n bietjie te loperig.
Gooi die res van die bier in die mengsel en meng goed deur. Verhit nou die olie en wanneer dit die gewenste temperatuur bereik het, skep klein skeppies beslag met 'n langsteel-teelepel uit die bak en plaas in die olie om te bak/kook.
Laat bak tot mooi goudbruin en gaar. Skep met 'n gaaitjieslepel uit die olie en strooi ligweg met Aromat of Braaispeserye (Barbeque Spice).
Vir ietwat meer van 'n branderige smakie - gebruik Chillie Beef.
Laat goed afkoel en bedien of geniet terwyl jy lekker voor die TV uitspan.

Chakalaka – uitsonderlik “hot or not”

Posted in Sauces

Vier weke later en die Rustenburg Herald eindig sy “Seshabo” reseptereeks met nog ‘n welbekende resep van die pap-en-sous familie: Chakalaka. Elke Suid-Afrikaner ken hierdie ene en terwyl party tevrede is met Chakalaka uit ‘n blikkie het ons besluit om hierdie maklike (maar steeds lekker) resep met ons lesers te deel.

Chakalaka is natuurlik een van daardie “seshabo” resepte wat soms bietjie van ‘n byt het en die groenrissie in hierdie resep gee ons Chakalaka presies dit. Party mense geniet iets effens meer “spicy” en sal dus geniet om dalk ‘n paar ekstra rissies in te sit. Aan hierdie mense sê ek: wanneer eet ons! Geniet jou Chakalaka saam met pap en vleis of selfs op ‘n lekker snytjie vars gebakte brood. Die Chakalaka kan ook in die yskas vir ‘n paar dae gestoor word en party mense sal sê sy smaak verbeter eintlik hoe langer hy staan. Rebecca Nhlapo van die Rustenburg Herald het haar Chakalaka-resep met die Rustenburg Herald en sy lesers hierdie week gedeel – ‘n wenresep vir enige braai.

 

Bestanddele:

1 pak groenboontjies, gekap en gekook
4 groot tamaties, in blokkies gesny
1 groot ui, gerasper
1 pakkie rooi-, geel- en groen-soetrissie, in blokkies gesny
2 teelepels matige kerriepoeier
2 groenrissies
1 pakkie Chakalaka-soppoeier
1/2 koppie koue water
2 teelepels olie 

Metode

Verhit die olie in ‘n pan en voeg dan die uie, soetrissie, kerrie, tamatie en groenrissies by. Roerbraai vir ‘n paar minute en voeg dan die groenboontjies by. Meng goed. Voeg dan die water en soppoeier by en kook dan totdat die mengsel effens dik word. Bedien saam met ‘n lekker pap of reis saam met jou gunsteling vleis.

Recycling for a better future

Posted in News: National

RUSTENBURG HERALD - RUSTENBURG - South Africa produces roughly 540 million tonnes of waste per year, 95% of which ends up in rubbish dumps and landfills instead of recycling centres. Recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to keep a 100 watt light bulb burning for 4 hours while recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to operate a TV for 3 hours. This is the energy which is “lost” to originally manufacture glass from silicon etc. Each one of us can make a difference by recycling and at the same time help others less fortunate or the environment as a whole...
