Yield 8 Side for 8 people



  1. Heat a large stockpot with the coconut oil. Once hot, add the onions, garlic, and chilis
  2. Once the onions appear slightly translucent and to have "sweated" a bit, add the green beans and bell pepper to the stockpot and stir around
  3. After 1-2 minutes, add the carrots and the spices (white pepper, paprika, thyme, and curry powder). Add a small splash of water if the pot seems too dry, but otherwise stir the spice mixture thoroughly throughout the ingredients. Let simmer for 5 minutes together
  4. After 5 minutes, add the tomatoes and tomato puree and stir thoroughly. Cook for another 2 minutes
  5. Finally, add the beans and incorporate well into the tomato mixture. After ~3 minutes of simmering together, take off the heat. Chakalaka can be served both cold and hot, depending on your preference
