Wonderbag Mugh

Written by on October 3, 2013 in Easy Recipes

I received the wonderbag from Fahmieda Barends this Ramadan. I have used it a few times to keep things warm especially when travelling.  I transported a huge pot of acknee and it kept the food piping hot. When we reached destination we ate lekker.  I wanted to try to cook something with the wonderbag and thought let me experiment with mugh. This wonderbag is ideal for slow cooking. You start the process and then you leave in the wonderbag to finish the job slowly but surely.. it is a great way to save electricity. Also can be used as a cooler bag and keeps stuff cold.

Here is my attempt

How I made it was

I added 1 cup mugh into water. I boiled the mugh for about 10 minutes. I left in the wonderbag to soften for a few hours. About 3 hours. Before I was ready to serve mugh, i made the tamati chutney vagar and added that the soft mugh. I boiled again for about 15 minutes until the mugh and the vagaar became one. Then I left in the wonderbag till we served it..

wala.. wonderbag mugh.

About wonderbag

A Wonderbag is an insulated bag in which people can cook anything from meaty stews and vegetable curries to simple rice and soups. You kick-start the cooking process by heating your pot of food on the stove, then simply place it in the Wonderbag.

Wonderbag’s clever insulating properties allow food that has been brought to the boil to finish cooking while in the bag. This greatly reduces the use of additional energy. This means families can cook appetising, hot meals while saving energy and money. It also means less time tending to the cooking food. Now time can be better spent looking after children, earning an income or doing essential chores.

And because the Wonderbag is unplugged, your free time will also be worry-free!

Heat-retention cooking is an age-old technique. The Wonderbag’s fun and unique design has brought it into the 21st century!

The slowed cooking process, combined with sealing the pot in the Wonderbag, ensures the flavours and nutrients are retained inside the pot – not evaporated into thin air.

Wonderbag cooking times



Benefits of wonderbag

Less time in the kitchen…
more time for family and yourself!

Wonderbag has many benefits…

  • It can reduce a family’s fuel usage up to 30% – saving money and easing poverty
  • It reduces CO2 emissions
  • It reduces toxic fumes which means less respiratory problems and other diseases, particularly in children
  • It reduces accidents in the kitchen, because stoves are used less
  • It reduces time spent cooking, giving more time for child-care and other activities
  • It saves precious water. When the pot is insulated in a Wonderbag at a fairly constant temperature, less evaporation occurs, so less water is needed
  • It saves food. 20% of all staple food in Africa is burned, due to pots being placed on open fires and unregulated stove tops. With Wonderbag, no burning occurs

    My five favourite things to do with the wonderbag:
    1. Make yogurt – check Fahmieda’s wonderbag revolution page.
    2. Cook curries or stews on stove until stage where you add tomatoes and potatoes and finish cooking in wonderbag.
    3. Cook rice. Flip the lid of the curry pot and add the rice pot on top and get both cooking at the same time.
    4. Keep pots warm if a family member has a later supper than the rest of us.
    5. Slow cook pasta sauces – taste so much better slow cooked.
