Nazeeha Abrahams’ culinary journey started when, as a newly-wed, she was feeling lost in her own kitchen. Her mother was called in to guide her. With newfound confidence she explored her Cape Malay heritage, blending it with the exotic aromas from Durban’s spice market – to the great delight of her family.
The result is a tempting collection of colourful dishes, which Nazeeha shares in abundance. Easy, yet never boring, there’s something for every taste and every occasion. Try your hand at her tandoori masala chicken or denning chops; green bean bajie on the side and dhaltjies for a bit of bite. Get into a festive mood with oven-roasted Eid chicken or Maffrou (a wedding dish richly flavoured with mother in law’s masala). From the oven come potato pudding, coconut cookies and milk tart, subtly perfumed with cardamom and nutmeg. She also shares her tried and trusted take on the ultimate chocolate cake.
