Botswanan Bogobe Slap Pap Recipe

Share

Botswanan Bogobe – also called “slap-pap” – is a national favorite mealtime staple in the African country of Botswana. The word roughly translates to “stiff porridge” and slap-pap is just that – stiff, and rather mild tasting. But it is nevertheless a remarkably tasty accompaniment to main entrees. Bogobe serves as a lighter taste and varying texture to go along with the meats, soups, stews, and vegetable dishes found in Botswana cuisine.

Its full name is “Bogobe jwa lerotse”, and it has a marvelously subtle flavor provided by the lerotse melon ingredient.
Lerotse melon appears almost identical as the common watermelon, but it has orange flesh, and is not at all sweet. Eaten raw, the taste is reminiscent of cucumber. However, when cooked, it gives the bogobe its unmistakably unique flavor.
