Say Hello To The New Year with Mogodu

Fancy a South African delicacy that will make your mouth water? Try our famous Mogodu this 2015. Our favourite South African cuisine is a definite must have this year in accordance to Forbes Magazine “The Year of the Antelope”… Come on, try it!

If you, like myself, Cassper and AKA, are all chewed out on beef and looking to challenge your pallet beyond what has so far been a staple diet for the majority of our middle class population, then 2015 might be the perfect year to take the plunge.

Forbes Magazine officially named 2015, “The Year of the Antelope”. I know what you’re thinking, the thought of a literal venture into venison isn’t a familiar one.

In the spirit of escaping the mundane and often comfortable habit of choosing beef as our preferred source of cow (meat), we can interpret “The Year of the Antelope” as more about confronting your beef with tripe, culturally known as “malamogodu“, can loosely be translated as animal intestines.

While, meat may be as hard to come by as that extra buck for the average South African, a recent study shows that over the past decade, meat consumption has increased amongst the population. A growing phenomenon which can be attributed to increased wages and a general family income.

The general perception amongst South Africans is that tripe is only consumed by those who can’t make ends meet(meat) at the end of every month.

However, the idea is to gradually incorporate this delicacy into your diet at least twice this year on those happy days… why not?

Interestingly, while many South Africans may snub their noses at the idea, tripe is still a largely popular delicacy in many parts of Europe, including France and Italy. 2015 is not just the year of venturing and experimenting with various tripe dishes, it may also very well be the year the two South African rappers decide to serve us their food for thought in a post-beef collaboration.

At an affordable price, and availability across all supermarkets and food retailers, there’s no excuse not to try it. Go on, give it a go. If you’re stuck on preparation, have a look at this month’s relevant recipe. Remember, it’s a lifestyle thing…

Lose Big in 7 Days With The Cabbage Soup Diet

Turns out losing up to 4 kg in one week is totally doable. With a bit of cabbage soup feasting, lots of water and chowing veggies the whole time, you will be there in no time. Read all about that

Published

on

Many of us piled on the kilos during the festive season at all those family gatherings. And stubbornly, We shall continue with that tradition every festive because food is great. Food is incredible, we love great food.

But now that the days of starting the day off with straight junk are in the past, you might be wanting to get back in shape quickly because there is an event coming up soon and you want to fit into something slutty smaller.

Despair no longer, because crash diets like the Cabbage Soup Diet will help lose a ton of weight in no time!

What Is It?

Say hello to the cabbage soup diet. With this eating plan, you can cut off as much as 4 kg in just 7 days!

Look, be warned: the soup will suck after a couple of days. You will be farting up a storm, feel light headed and even nauscious from what will go from being the smell- to being the ‘stench’ of cabbage. BUT, it helps that the diet may NOT be followed for a period lasting longer than 7 days (with at least 2 weeks in between another go).

In the 7 days, all you consume is the cabbage soup, veggies and fruits. And a lot of water to help flush out toxins. Besides, you should be drinking at least 8 glasses of water anyway.

Here is the Detailed Plan:

Day One: The Soup + unlimited amounts of fruits throughout the day. No bananas though, they are still the devil.

Day Two: The Soup + unlimited amounts of vegetables (with no starch) and no fruits.

Day Three: Now you can have both fruits and vegetables with the soup

Day Four: Finally you can have bananas. Up to 8, with some milk. With the soup, water and nothing else.

Day Five: You are getting there and something nice is allowed now. Beef (Or baked skinless chicken) and tomatoes.

Day Six: Beef and veggies now.

Day Seven: Last Day, Brown rice, fruit juice and veggies. And you are about 4 kg’s lighter!

Recipe

 2 large yellow or white onions

1 or 2 garlic cloves

green peppers

1 or 2 cans of tomatoes(diced or whole)

carrots

1 container (10 oz. or so) mushrooms

1 bunch of celery

Half a head of cabbage

Limitations

Crash diets are a good way to lose weight quickly, for stuff like an upcoming event or to kick start a long term diet. Most of the weight lost is water, so you will likely gain most of it the minute normal eating resumes.

The soup is pretty bland and boring and can get tiring pretty quick, although other spicy and more tolerable variations have emerged over the years. Some people who have gone on this diet have also reported light headedness, nauscious, loss of energy, poor concentration levels and sometimes, headaches. So approach with caution, consult a doctor if you must.

Spring Roll Treat: The simple recipe

Published

on

For easy spring rolls
Ingredients:
Spring roll wrappers

Filling:
3 chicken breasts cut up in small pieces
2 cups of thinly sliced cabbage
3 carrots sliced thinly or grated

Sauce:
2 tbsp Soy sauce
2 tbsp Oyster sauce
2 tbsp Brown sugar
1 tbsp Sesame oil
2 tsp dried garlic flakes

 

Pic 2
Stir fry chicken in 2 tbsp cooking oil for 3-4 minutes. Add cabbage and carrots and stir fry for 3-4 minutes adding a bit of salt to taste. You still want the cabbage to retain a slight crunch. Mix the sauce ingredients together and add to the stir fry, cook on high heat till sauce is sticky and clings to ingredients. You don’t want excess fluid in spring roll.

Remove from heat and let the filling cool down completely. Warm filling causes steam that makes spring rolls soggy and not suitable for frying.

 

Food 1

Place around a tablespoon of filling and roll spring roll according to packet instructions. Place a damp cloth over any exposed spring roll wrappers to keep them from drying out. If you need to seal the spring roll, use a corn starch slurry (1 tsp corn starch and 3 tsp water mixed) as glue to prevent the spring rolls from opening up during frying.

 

Pic 3
Fry spring rolls in cooking oil heated to 175 degree Celsius. Don’t crowd them and fry 4-5 at a time, to prevent the oil temperature dropping too much. Place on paper towels to drain excess oil. Serve warm with a cool salad, and sweet chilli sauce for dip.
