What is a braai without pap?

How to make pap in a microwave:

For 3-4 people, you will need: coarse maize meal; rreshly boiled water; large microwaveable bowl (Glass Pyrex bowl) with a lid; large two tine fork and salt.

It will take only 10minutes so pay attention….

In your microwave bowl, 1 cup of maize meal, a pinch of salt, add just enough freshly boiled water and work it in with a fork. Set microwave on high and set timer for 10 minutes. Put the lid on your bowl and pop it in the microwave. Microwave for about a minute and then remove it, thoroughly stir in a little bit more water and return to the microwave. Repeat this process (remove, add a little water and stir, microwave again) 3 or 4 more times during cooking time at regular intervals.

Tips:

  • A glass Pyrex bowl is preferable to a plastic one
  • For putu (krummel)  pap, add a little less water and use the fork to make the pap crumbly. Believe me, you can make perfect krummelpap in the microwave!
  • In the same way, adding more water will give you a denser (stywe) pap or if you add more water (with finer maize meal) you will have finer runny like porridge (slap pap).
  • Making pap in the microwave may seem strange at first, but you will master it in no time and no one will be able to tell the difference!
