It’s a Monday and some have been partying since last Thursday and therefore in great need a quick fix to get rid of the thumping headache.

Well,  few weeks ago a friend of mine decided to make sure I drink in celebration of my birthday.  The next day I had to be somewhere but I couldn’t even lift my head to get out of bed so my partner suggested this hangover cure.  He says it has been tried and tested and hasn’t disappointed.  Initially, I was not keen on consuming tomatoes with so much salt.  Twenty minutes went by and the headache was miraculously gone and I was full of energy.  It only requires four ingredients.

Hangover Cure Recipe

One or two tomatoes


A glass of water



  1. Cut the tomatoes into quarters
  2. Sprinkle the salt on the tomatoes
  3. Mix sugar, water and stir until dissolved
  4. Eat the tomotoes and wash them down with the sugar water solution

Back where I come from the sugar-water solution is called “Indubela” and growing up we drank it as one would drink a cold drink after meals or a hot summer day.

Anyways, back to the hangover or let us rather call it babalaas cure.  It’s quick and easy to prepare, no blending required.  Give it a try and let us know how it works out for you.

    Hi Thuli,

    I am used to buying a tomato juice in the shop. These days I have to take a Savanah light LOL!

    I will try this for sure when I’m going on a camping trip….and recommend this to all my wild friends!
