In South Africa, a Vetkoekis a ball of bread dough, deep-fried until it is crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.   A vetkoek is delicous, served split in half and filled with your favourite curry. I love to serve them with a mince curry, made with lots of juicy sauce that soaks into the vetkoek, and drips out down your chin as you bite into the spicy goodness. You will need to keep plenty of serviettes handy !
