These were inspired by Louise and Anna restaurant in Joburg. The restaurant’s name is a clever take on ‘Louisiana’ and it serves Cajun-inspired food. Add roast chicken to bulk up the dish.”

Cooking Instructions

1. Whisk the flour, baking powder, Cajun seasoning, egg, and milk. Heat the oil in a large saucepan.

2. Pat dry the pickles with kitchen paper. Dip into the batter, then lightly into the breadcrumbs. Lay on a tray for about 5 minutes so the crumbs stick, then fry in batches until light brown. Drain on kitchen paper.

3. To make the flatbread, mix all the ingredients and bring together to form a ball using your hands. Wrap in cling-wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

4. Divide the dough into 6 pieces and roll out on a floured surface. Heat a griddle pan and pan-fry on both sides for a few minutes.

5. To serve, pile the pickles onto the flatbreads and drizzle with the dressing. Serve with lemon or lime wedges.
