Cooking Lessons For Boys: Afrikaans Kerrie En Rys

Cooking Lessons For Boys: Afrikaans Kerrie En Rys

Traditional Afrikaans Kerrie en Rys (Curry and Rice) is one of my all time favourite meals (I say traditional Afrikaans, but I suspect it may actually be traditional Cape Malay).

WIN! A R500 voucher for Wellness Warehouse

I routinely go in for one thing and come out with several shopping bags full of goodness, swearing to turn our house into a rice milk-drinking, wheat-free Health Zone.
