Find out how the South African government is working to combat the spread of the corona virus here:


30 ml (2 Tbsp.) sunflower oil

1 onion, chopped

500 g beef mince

1 x 410 can Rhodes Quality Mild & Spicy Chakalaka

2 potatoes, peeled, chopped and boiled

salt and freshly ground black pepper

800 g (2 rolls) prepared puff pastry, thawed

1 egg, whisked


Heat the oil in a medium saucepan and fry the onions until soft and golden. Add the mince and brown. Add the Rhodes Quality Mild & Spicy Chakalaka and bring the mince to the boil. Add the potatoes, reduce the heat and simmer gently to heat through. Season to taste. Cool. Use a round saucer or cutter to cut out 12 rounds of pastry. Spoon a tablespoon of the Chakalaka mince on to the middle of each pastry round. Brush the edges with the egg. Close the circle to a semi-circle over the top of the mince and press the edges together to seal the filling inside. Place the pasties on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake in an oven preheated to 200° for 20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden and cooked through. Serve hot.
