The delicious delicacy is fried dough (also known as vetkoek or fat cakes) and is a staple for many South Africans because it is so cheap and easy to make. It is often enjoyed with a filling inside, such as mince, jam or with polony and atchaar, The South African reported.

It is usually sold for R2-R4 on average but this young man decided to sell them at R8 each, causing an uproar on social media.
