Pap, also known as mieliepap in South Africa, is a traditional porridge / polenta made from mielie-meal and a staple food of the Bantu inhabitants of South Africa. Many traditional South African dishes include pap, such as smooth maize meal porridge, pap with a very thick consistency that can be held in the hand and a more dry crumbly phutu pap. A variety of savouries are used to accompany pap, made from green vegetables, and flavoured with chilli. Afrikaners in the northern parts of the country eat it as a breakfast staple, with milk and sugar, but also serve it with meat and tomato-stew at other meals, When they are having a braai, stywe pap or phutu pap with a savoury sauce like tomato and onion or mushroom and cheese is an important part of the meal. In the Cape-provinces it is almost exclusively seen as a breakfast food. Since mielie-meal is inexpensive, poor people combine it with vegetables. It can be served hot or, after it has cooled, it can be fried. Phutu porridge is sometimes enjoyed with chakalaka as a side dish with braais.
