Vetkoek (pronounced Fet-cook and literally meaning fat cake, fat cookie or fatty cake)
is another traditional South African dish. It is very easy to make. It is bread dough deep-fried in oil. It can be eat just as it is, with butter and jam, or cheese but can be filled with savoury or curried mince, biltong or anything else you think would taste wonderful.
A vetkoek is made from flour, salt and yeast. The dough is then rolled into a ball, deep fried and filled with something. It is normally eaten with butter, filled with jam or a savory filling. If you still don't know what vetkoek is, it is basically deep-fried bread that is shaped like a hamburger bun.
In a traditional South African braai
, vetkoek may be served alongside boerewors, which is a South African sausage. Wash everything well before use. The normal food preparation hygiene rules apply.
