This is a very South African dumpling and it’s fabulous!!
Make slap-pap like a true South African:
2 cups water
2 TBSP Maize meal
Boil the water in a saucepan, then add the maize meal and stir vigorously.
Simmer for 20 minutes until cooked.
Allow to cool while you have a drink a beer or three
Beat 2 eggs into pap
Add 2 cups flour
2tsp Baking Powder
2 cups of grated Cheddar cheese
Spoon teaspoonfuls into deep hot oil (not boiling hot otherwise they will not cook completely and just burn) and fry until brown.
They’ll turn over half way by themselves… very cute!!
Dry with kitchen towel
Sprinkle Aeromat once the oil has drained.
Divine with a braai! and a nice Tomato and Onion Gravy
