Me and my husband love vetkoek and mince. We grew up eating it and every second shop selling it. With this easy recipe, you can make it and enjoy it too.
If you want to know where to find the best vetkoek dough, I suggest Mama Africa in Pukekohe. You can get it if you are in New Zealand at any South African shop, and you can also ask for it, it usually goes for $4 for 1kg packet.
From our kitchen to yours, happy cooking.
