  1. What I am saying is that this is untraveled cooking the is common in places like Soweto market. There is no value add. Nothing new


    • Even nkhuni or mbaula, 10hrs is just too much, by then kids would have gone to sleep and you end up eating alone.


  2. I wonder what kind of meals you guys have. There’s a difference between cooking and boiling!!
