wcoic day one: south africa

First evening of our World Cup of International Cuisine kicked off, naturally, with a South African dish.

Spicy Durban Curry.

We’d spied these Something South African sauces at Harris Farm markets several weeks ago and were slightly intrigued. Obviously not intrigued enough to purchase any – being the foodie wankers that we are, we totally sneer at packaged sauces. But the World Cup of Food gave us the perfect excuse to try one out.

We had no great expectations of this at all, other than to cross South Africa from the list, but … it was really, really, really very good and so simple.

The only way it could have been improved was with the addition of some fresh naan bread.

We’ll be acquiring some more and keeping in the cupboard for perfect emergency dinners. Brown your meat (we chose chicken thigh fillets), cover in sauce and chuck in the oven in a casserole dish for 45 minutes.
