Mielie Meal or maize meal is a relatively coarse flour (much coarser than cornflour) made from maize (which is known as mielies in South Africa). It is available in the international section of the supermarket or from a speciality South African shop.

Soetkoekies are crisp biscuits perfect for dipping into tea or coffee. They are popular at Christmas time but delicious any time of the year.
