Beer bread and mango atchaar

By 16th Aug 2016 No Comments


The beer bread and mango atchaar make for great sides and garnish, and are a firm favourite at Camp Jabulani for bush lapa dinners. South Africans love to braai (barbeque) over weekends , and to entertain friends and family around a blazing fire. These are a must to accompany the feast!

The beer bread is easy to make, and is best enjoyed with some oxtail, lamb or beef potjie.


  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon       salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tin beer
  • ½ cup melted butter


  • Mix all ingredients together except the the butter.
  • Pour butter on top and bake for 1 hour.
