This recipe was featured on week 34 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook on meal from every nation on Earth, and Botswana is my 34th stop. Unless otherwise noted, my Travel by Stove recipes are taken from authentic or traditional sources, and this recipe has been posted without any alternations or additions to the ingredients. This recipe originally appeared in "Mma Ramotswe's Cookbook." When I made these I used too little flour, so mine were more like cookies (as pictured in my photo). Yours will be thicker and more biscuit-like.
