Tips for Tito: There's more to tinned fish than just curry
Last night, South Africa’s Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni made tinned fish curry for dinner.
Last month he made chicken and beef stew which had tweeps in stitches as both dishes took hours to prepare, and this time around he was back with a quickly and easy to make dish, tinned fish with pap.
Step one shows some of Mboweni's ingredients that he used, which are two onions, two tomatoes and a Lucky Star tinned fish.
