Lentil Potjie Recipe – Method

Pack one layer of briquettes onto the coal grid inside your PotjieKing™ and place a couple fire lighters in the bottom section and get that going. Once the briquettes have stopped smoking, place your Potjie pot onto the PotjieKing™ to heat up.

  • Pour the oil into the potjie pot to heat up.
  • Fry the onion until translucent.
  • Add in all of the ingredients.
  • Simmer for 40 minutes.
  • Allow to stand for 2 hours – this allows the flavours to really come out.
  • Reheat and serve with fresh bread or brown rice.

Eating is a necessity but cooking is an Art!
