A good hearty meal after a long day at work is a norm in most SA households. This includes ministers such as Tito Mboweni. Minister Mboweni has been showing off his culinary skills on Twitter for a while now and this time he tried a uniquely South African dish.

Before he began his journey to a delicious meal last night, Tito asked his followers to vote on mopane worms or pilchards. From his follow-up tweet, it is clear that South African tweeps chose the edible caterpillar.

While some enjoy the Finance minister's posts, others tend to throw major shade at Mboweni. Over the weekend, the politician shared snaps of the dinner he cooked for himself. However, this time the minister himself admitted the dish did not come out as he hoped.

The images show Mboweni making a dish using pilchards, onions, tomatoes and of course, his famous garlic. He captioned the post:

"This did not work out. The stress did not help!! Anyway. Here we are!"
