Chakalaka Recipe


  • 3 Tbsp Oil
  • 1 Can Baked Beans (410 Grams)
  • 1 Medium Onion (Diced)
  • 3 Large Carrots (Roughly Grated)
  • ½ of Medium Red Pepper (Diced)
  • ½ of Medium Green Pepper (Diced)
  • 1 Tbsp Curry Powder
  • 1 Tsp Chilli Powder or Sauce
  • Salt to Taste


Heat the pan, add the oil and onions.
Add the peppers and fry until they are soft and aromatic.
Add the grated carrots, a little bit of salt(you can skip this) and the curry powder and stir to mix. Fry for about 2-3 minutes cause the carrots wont take long to cook.
Pour in the can of beans and mix well until its all combined and the beans have coated the curry.
Let simmer until the beans have heated.
