I was telling my mum about our bumper crop of chokos this year. Mum reminded me that when I was a kid, she used to cook chokos for us by cutting them into small pieces, boiling them in water and serving them with white sauce. So here's my version of mum's recipe.
- 3 chokos skinned and cut into 2cm cubes
- 500ml milk
- 1/2 cup cornflour
- 1 tbsp margarine or butter
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
- Cook choko in a loosely covered microwave dish for 10 mins (1000 watt)
- While choko is cooking, make a paste out of a small amount of the milk and the cornflour (mix well so there are no lumps)
- Bring the remainder of the milk to boil in a saucepan--being careful to remove from the heat immediately it starts to boil
- Stir the margarine or butter into the milk until it's meted through
- Place the saucepan back on the heat and whisk in the cornflour paste--simmer on low heat, stirring continuously until thickened (add parsley just before the sauce thickens)
- Remove the choko from the microwave, add the sauce and serve.
