Heritage Day will be celebrated this Sunday, 24 September.

As millions of South Africans will be dressed in their traditional attire and eating different traditional meals, one of the most-loved dishes is boerewors and mash.

Put the boerewors in a pot with a lid. 

The wors will release fat which it will fry in. 

Allow the wors to brown for a few minutes. 

Add diced onion and fry until it is brown. 

Add tomato paste and allow to simmer. 

Add a pinch of salt. Remember the wors already has spices, so there is no need for spices. 

Serve with mash and South African Chakalaka sauce!
