    IF you’re a curry buff you have probably heard of the dish I have just posted, there are a thousand variations out there. When I was still a young boy we had a Cape Malay house keeper who was huge and had an even huger influence on the type of food we ate and came to love. She had two recipes us children used to beg her to cook. I can still hear her say ‘Ag nee man, nie veer nie!” [Oh no man, not again]. If it was raining and cold outside [yes South Africa does get those days sometimes in winter] either of these dishes were a given. We used to pray for cold weather sometimes, just to have her make us ‘Bobotie’ or “Ma Fa’s Bean Soup”
    I was very blessed to inherit my Mom’s old browned and stained cook book it had an add from a news paper cut out in the back, dating back to 1936 so its been around for a while. These two recipes were there on loose sheets of paper, still written in Ma Fatama’s hand writing; I have made these dishes from my wheelchair many times just as they are written adding noting or taking nothing out they come out just like Ma Fa made them every time [I have translated them into English and given accurate mass and temp conversions]: so these are not my creations just tried and tested all time favorite comfort food, let me share them with you.
