Recipe 33/50 : South Africa : Carrot Bredie

Today's recipe is from South Africa. This is not the staple or traditional food here but is served in many restaurants and famous. This is very healthy food, and is served as main dish in this place. I'm on a vacation @ Smoky Mountains and hence lacking words to write in here. Please enjoy reading the recipe and post your comments.
For first time visitors to this place, I'm doing a 50 From 50 In 50 challenge.
