Don't feel like cooking breakfast or dinner? Here's an easy recipe that I absolutely love to make. The way I like to make bake and sardine choka requires no cooking and can be prepared in under five minutes ( provided you have all the ingredients at hand) Ready!
A Convenient Meal
Sardine choka goes well with roti, bake or bread. I've never tried it with rice but I'm sure it tastes good the same. Since I've known myself this has been a favourite and a regular on the "menu" at home. I can still see it now ....the tin of Brunswick Sardines..... the aroma of the freshly chopped onions...the ripe juicy tomatoes .. the piping hot bake wrapped in a towel; already cut and waiting....And this was washed down with some hot cocoa tea...not the commercial kind but real homemade chocolate....All this on a Saturday morning. Those were the days!!..Set!
I can't put a finger on it but there's something about the lemon juice, onions and the pepper that
works with the sardine to make sardine choka such a delicious dish. And perhaps take you on a journey into the past for just a while. Could it be true that there's a type of memory connected to your tastebuds? I mean there are certain dishes that does this to me, taking me straight to my childhood ...Like in Ratatouille; remember coming to the end what happened to the food critic when he tasted the food? That's what I'm talking about.
I think I will have to look into this because there are some dishes that do this to me. Has this ever happened to you? We may be on to something. Anyhow here's my humble but tasty Sardine Choka. Enjoy! Go!
