Hints & Tips

This recipe can be successfully doubled for a larger family, without any method adjustments.
For a change, substitute the cream and peri-peri powder for hot chicken stock and several squeezes of peri-peri squeeze-sauce. At serving time, stir in chopped fresh dhania and 125 ml SPAR plain yoghurt off the stove. Stir in half a jar of SPAR garlic-stuffed olives.
