Yoghurt and koeksisters are a wonderful combination and a "Quick Cape Town Sweet". Add some preserved sour figs or other fruit and you are close to heaven :-). Koeksisters are a traditional South African
dish and are prepared generally in 2 different ways. The Afrikaner style where the sweet dough pieces are twisted like a braid and the traditional Cape Malay style with some different ingredients where they remain straight and are covered with coconut flakes. I like both varieties. For this recipe I used the Afrikaner style koeksisters which you can buy here in many shops and even from a street trader along the road. Homemade ones are of course the preferable option but if you are short of time and you have a craving for a sweet treat this option will be just fine.

My carolina reaper chicken curry was extremely yummy and of course quite hot. This is not surprising with the Carolina Reaper chili being regarded until recently as the hottest chili in the world.
