This traditional krummelpap recipe is the perfect braai companion. Krummelpap is typically served in most South African homes as starch to accompany a meat dish such as a braai, a stew, or in some households, curry. Krummelpap is a delicious side dish and it tastes great when used to soak up a braai relish such as chakalaka or a tomato-based relish.
Krummelpap is also well known in the pap-en-wors combination. in this case, krummelpap will be served with boerewors and a tomato-based relish as the sauce. Another name for krummelpap is mielie pap because it is made with mealie meal. Other households in South Africa may refer to krummelpap as putu pap. Many English-speaking people have asked me what Krummel pap would men in English, then I just tell them, Crumbly Porridge.
There are a few ways in which mealie meals can be prepared, and this krummelpap recipe method is one of them. Another popular method is stywepap (Stiff Porridge), where more water is added to the pap recipe, and it is not stirred as often, to create a stiff consistency.
