Chicken Sishebo

Deep-Fried Pap

  • 1 cup(s) maize meal, cooked according to instructions on the packet with ...
  • 1 tsp Hinds Spices Turmeric
  • 1 cup(s) cheddar cheese, grated
  • ½ cup(s) corn flour
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Heat oil in a large pot, sauté the onion & garlic until soft. Add the chicken pieces, Hinds Chicken Spice, Hinds Turmeric, Hinds Mild & Spicy Curry Powder, Rhodes Quality Chopped & Peeled Tomatoes, Hinds Mixed Herbs and chicken stock. Simmer for 35 minutes until the chicken is cooked.
  • Add the peppers and mushroom and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Deep-Fried Pap

  • For the deep-fried pap, combine hot cooked pap with the cheddar cheese. Evenly arrange the pap in a rectangular container lined with baking paper and place into the fridge to set. Once the pap is set (as one would set a jelly), cut it into bite-sized blocks, coat in the corn flour and deep fry until crispy.
  • Serve the sishebo with deep fried pap.

Chef's Tip

  • Make use of the vegetables you have available. Add a splash of cream for a Sishebo variation. You can also use chopped coriander, chopped parsley or mint to garnish.
