Akni recipe, anyone?!

Recommended Posts

I know that this might be far-fetched, but I am looking for a recipe for Cape Malay Akni (meatless version). I googled it, but can't find anything suitable. H-E-L-P! :cry:

I've never heard of it, sorry! Google some of the ingredients - sometimes that helps.

Here's a version with meat - I am sure you could substitute chicken or if just a veggie version then whatever veggies you like. I am assuming it is the flavor your are looking for.


MEAT AKNI (18.02.06)



20ml cooking oil

2 large onions, finely chopped

1kg lamb/mutton pieces (or thick rib)

1 green chilli finely chopped

15ml salt or to taste

15ml fine ginger & garlic masala

5ml jeeru powder

15ml ground coriander powder

5ml ground fennel/somph

15ml turmeric

15ml chilli powder

1 whole clove

3 cardamom pods

3 pieces stick cinnamon

4 medium potatoes peeled and quarted

100ml hot water as needed

4 x 250ml uncooked rice

60ml chopped dhunya




1. Heat oil in a large pot and add the onions and braise until golden brown and soft.

2. Add the meat, spices and cook covered over medium heat until meat is tender

3. Add potatoes and water and cook for another 10 mins.

4. Pour over rice, add enough water to cook the rice, Fast boil rice without stirring.

5. When settled stir well and steam covered for 20/30 minutes or until the rice is done.

6. Garnish with dhunya and serve with atchar and salads.
