Step 2: Cook the vegetables

Add the onion and green pepper to the pot and cook until they are soft. Add the tomato, spinach, and collard greens and continue cooking for about 5 minutes.

Step 3: Add the maize meal

Slowly add the maize meal to the pot while stirring continuously. Add the water and stir until everything is well combined.

Step 4: Cook the Phahla

Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Allow the Phahla to cook for about 30 minutes or until the maize meal is fully cooked. Stir the Phahla occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pot. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5: Make the Chakalaka

While the Phahla is cooking, heat the cooking oil in a separate pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, green pepper, carrot, and garlic and cook until the vegetables are soft. Add the diced tomatoes, baked beans, and curry powder and stir well. Allow the Chakalaka to simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 6: Serve and enjoy

Once the Phahla is fully cooked, remove it from the heat and let it sit for a few minutes. Scoop the Phahla into bowls and top with the Chakalaka. Serve hot and enjoy!
