Hi All

Was wondering how to make your own homemade mielie bomb. I saw some on previous posts such as:

INGREDIANTS: 1kg chic chic no 1
7 cups warm water
½ teaspoon tartrazine powder
METHOD: pour water in plastic container and mix in the tartrazine stir until dissolved, add chic chic and mix well. Cook in microwave for 15 min. when cooked place in container / bucket and seal

But then was wondering dont u use some kind of binding agent to make it all doughy so that it holds onto the mielie bomb springs? Or is the above method doughy enough to hold on? do u add custard powder etc for further tasting? Maize meal?


Any input would help.

Do a search on kaboemmielies, that works the best for me and add some weight for the cast

The recipe you have there is for cooked Bom

You add water till the Chic-Chic is just covered over. Put in the Micro on full power for 12 min, take out and stir through and put in again for 12 min and let it cool and ready to go fishing. If it is slightly wet add a small amount of popcorn feed to dry it out.

Hi Wez187,

Just something to remember Chic Chic 1 is very fine, and does take a long time to breakdown in the water.

An alternative is to use a combination of Chic Chic 1 and Chic Chic 2, equal amounts and follow the recipe. you will get a nice sticky Bom.

Hope this helps
