Growing up, my mom used to make melkkos for us at least every Sunday. She would stand hours in front of the stove, busy making melkkos for all of us. I love melkkos, it’s loved in every household in South-Africa, and all the saffas around the world.
I now miss being at home and my mom making her melkkos. As the world is less normal, and a new normal we must get used to, be safe and stay home, and let’s all be superheroes.
