Behind the recipe

Keep the tradition!

Smoke it up with Jouba's 'Paptert' recipe! Picture this: a mouth-watering, traditional South African dish, layered with maize porridge, deliciously seasoned vegetables, and melted cheese, all baked to perfection. And the cherry on the top? Not only does this dish taste heavenly, but it's also packed with nutrients. A fantastic way to sneak those veggies into your family's diet.
