  4. Hi just found your site and it looks great. so here is roostekoek. have you ever tried to adapt this recipe to make the “roasties” that we used to buy in pick n pay? I live in Thailand now and it would be great if you guys could come up with a “roasties” recipe!

    1. +99Jaapie Hi — I am not familiar with PnP’s roasties — I will look into it and get back to you. Thanks for watching!!!

    2. +Whats4Chow Thanks for the reply, basically they look exactly like the roostekoek, except you used to buy them in a pack of 6, put them on the braai and cook until the outside was crisp. The thing is they had filling in the middle like garlic/butter, chilly garlic etc and they were cooked with this stuff already inside. I just think that if I tried it with the “raw” dough, the filling may cause problems……great site by the way, loads of lekker recipes here I’ll be watching! Sorry abut the multiple posts, I was using my tablet and it kept saying that the post had failed !

    3. +99Jaapie Hi — ok, I think I know what you’re talking about…. I will give it a try this weekend!!!
