This fast food called 'Vetkoek' is one of the typical South African snacks. So this vetkoek consists of flour that is made into dough, then fried. After frying, usually this vekoek will be filled with meat, jam, and various fillings according to your taste. Vetkoek is also very easy to find in Africa, many roadside vendors selling these cute cakes. Prices from Vetkoek are also affordable, perfect for a snack while traveling in Africa.

Everyone loves vetkoek, which is why a vetkoek recipe is such a good thing to have! Fill it with a bit of beef curry and it's called "rabbit curry". It's also great with plain ground beef and cheddar cheese, or cheese and syrup!
