September is heritage month and we all celebrate this occasion in different ways.  We do however share one common heritage and call it many things:  Braai, Ukosa and Chisa Nyama to name a few.  The ingredients may differ but when we have something to celebrate we light fires, and prepare great feasts.

No matter where you live, celebrate your Heritage Day (aka South African National Braai Day) with this mouth-watering masterpiece!
