South African Chakalaka

This week's new international dish is from South Africa and is worth cooking just so you can answer the question 'What are you having for tea?' with...'Chakalaka!' - seriously, this word is soo much fun to say :)

Anyway... I volunteer on Saturdays so I need something quick and easy for tea when I come back and this recipe fits the bill perfectly; It was ready in about 20 minutes! I served it with polenta but it would also work over rice or a jacket potato.

Taste - *** (nice, comforting but nothing spectacularly special)
Speed - *****
Repeat? - yes I think so!

South African Chakalaka

1/3 onion, finely chopped
