Aah Snip you are a star! I have been wanting a chakalaka recipe for ages. Thanks so much. I miss this fabulous relish. The French don't really like spicy, so chutneys, achar etc are not to be found. Wonderful to have this, thanks. I found a fab recipe for a chutney that is almost 100% Mrs Balls. I make it in huge quantities as a lot of my friends now love it.

Only a pleasure :) You can make it with or without the vinegar. I like a bit of a tang, makes it taste a bit like veggie atchar and it last longer in the fridge.

Thanks guys :) Chakalaka is very traditional. I like adding it to eggs but we eat it as a side with meat and served with fresh bread in South Africa. It also nice mixed with cooked rice as a warm salad.

Peri-peri just means Chilli chilli in Portuguese. You could use chilli powder instead :) Didn't know you guys don't get peri peri there.

Sounds delicious :-)

We don't have peri peri, but depending on where you live, we have lots of dried or ground hot peppers available. From what I read, ground cayenne would be a good substitute.
