Another similar South African recipe is Amagwinya, the Xhosa name for this fried dough ball. But this version can either be sweet or savoury, unlike vetkoek. The word vetkoek literally means "fat cake" in Afrikaans. It is similar in shape to a doughnut without a hole, and is made with a yeast dough. Vetkoeks Vetkoek are also often made alongside a curry mince, which is stuffed inside. Also known as a curry bunnie when stuffed with mince in the cape provinces.
