South African Roosterbrood

Traditional Braai Recipes to get your mouth watering

The Traditional South African braai is not just a way to fill your stomach on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It is so much more.

The braai is a South African past-time that has been past down from generation to generation.

Over the years families have cultivated their own recipes and these recipes have become braai time favourites.

This month we are bringing our favourite braai recipes and accompaniments to the great meat normally found at braais.

Toasted braai sandwiches or rooster brood is a hot favourite at a braai as it keeps hunger pangs at bay and lines the stomach in preparation for the inevitable consumption of beer. Here is a great recipe for rooster brood.

Toasted Sandwiches:

What you’ll need:

White bread, butter, cheese slices, onions sliced, tomatoes sliced (depending on how many sandwiches you need).

Method:

Butter the outsides of your bread and make up sandwiches to taste. Place sandwiches between a grid and braai them until the outside is browned and the cheese melted.

If you are feeling truly creative why not make your own bread with this rooster brood recipe.

Rooster brood:

Make a basic bread dough but reduce the liquid. Spoonfuls are then cooked on a clean grid over low coals.

You will need:

500 ml flour, 15 ml baking powder, 2 ml salt, 150 ml milk, 1 egg, beaten

Method:

Mix together ingredients, place balls on clean grid, cook on one side until crisp, then turn and cook other side until they sound hollow when tapped.
