Jabulani means ‘rejoice’ or ‘come to bring hapiness’ in Zulu language. In other words, it’s a cause for celebration. This name was made particularly popular during the South Africa FIFA World Cup 2010, when it was adopted as the official name of the game ball during that tournament. This name seems befitting considering it’s relevance to South Africa and the man who gave so much for his country -Nelson Mandela.

This sauce also draws inspiration from the ‘Rainbow Nation’ through the colors and diversity of ingredients used. Post apartheid South Africa became a land of mixed cultures and colors (race), akeen to a rainbow. This was captured by Madiba when he said

“Each of us is as intimately attached to the soil of this beautiful country as are the famous jacaranda trees of Pretoria and the mimosa trees of the bushveld – a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world.”

You’ll also notice how most of the ingredients share the colors of the South African national flag?

So, for this mouth-watering recipe, you’ll need (4 servings):

4 tomatoes
2 bell peppers(tatashe)
3 long peppers
1/4 of a green pepper and yellow pepper
1 medium onion
2 pieces of chicken franks
1 cooking spoon vegetable oil
seasoning (salt and thyme)

1) Dice all the vegetables and chicken franks into very small sizes.

2) Next, heat the oil in a frying pan. Season the oil and stir. Be careful, so it doesn’t splash on you.

3) Throw in all the diced ingredients at once into the pan. This ensures that they cook together, and the flavors mix properly.

4) Leave to simmer for about 3 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat. Serve warm.

   Have a wonderful rainbow digestion 🙂  Bon appètit!
