HOW TO MAKE CHAKALAKA | SOUTH AFRICAN FOOD

I've been to South Africa four times in the past year and I ALWAYS eat Chakalaka when I go, I also had it at a South African event in Lagos a few months ago-it is delicious, it is a traditional Braai dish)! I promised to learn how to make it so that I can enjoy it at home instead of waiting to go the South Africa before satisfying my cravings. On my last visit which was only a few days ago (click HERE to see the videos), I asked chefs and home cooks for a recipe, I modified it to suit my taste (that means more pepper lol) and I am happy to share this recipe with you.
