Hmmm … hot stuff. Yummm. This recipe is easy peasy, and turns every dish it touches into something sublime. (For the record, my camera’s rubbish. These look a lot more appetising in the flesh).


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4-6 chillis of your choice, chopped
  • 2-4 (or more!) cloves of garlic, chopped
  • Salt, ginger and herbs and spices to taste
  • Optional: curry powder. I LOVE the Durban Curry spice from Imbali Blends. Awesomeness.


  1. Heat the oil and add the onions and garlic.
  2. Add the chillis, salt and spices.
  3. Cook the mixture at a medium to high heat. If it starts sticking to the pan, add a little filtered water and keep cooking it.
  4. Carry on in this way until the whole mixture is thoroughly cooked: it’ll be soft, and the onions will be translucent.
  5. Spoon it over meals, or bottle it in enough olive oil to cover the mixture. Store in the fridge.
