  • Red pepper flakes – 1 tablespoon
  • Bone-in cooked ham – 1 (6 to 8 pounds)

  • Add cola, mustard, brown sugar and red pepper flakes in a medium sized saucepan to boil. Let the mixture simmer on a low heat until slightly thickened with reduced glaze, taking about 20 to 30 minutes

  • Preheat oven to about 177 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, score ham using a sharp knife, making a grid pattern with 1/2 inch deep marks. Use a piece of buttered aluminium foil to line a roasting pan. Move ham to pan and get a third of the glaze on to ham using a pastry brush

  • Let it bake for one and a half hours and brush it with a third of the glaze. After baking for another hour, brush the remaining glaze as well. Get it baked for another half an hour until the instant-read thermometer reads 63 degrees Celsius when inserted into ham. Get it out of the oven and let it rest for about 20 minutes before it is ready to serve

2 - Cheddar Biscuits

These biscuits will please your guest best when served with Sweet and spicy cola-glazed ham accompanied with store-bought mustards and chutneys.


  • All-purpose flour – 4 cups, plus little more for surface
  • Baking powder – 8 teaspoons
  • Salt – 2 tablespoons
  • Freshly ground pepper – 2 teaspoons
  • Cold unsalted butter cut into small pieces – 1½ sticks
  • Buttermilk – 2 cups
  • Grated cheddar – 1 cup (4 ounces, roughly)


  • Preheat oven to 233 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, combine baking powder, flour, salt and pepper in a large bowl. With the help of your fingers or pastry cutter, cut in butter into it until the whole mixture starts resembling coarse crumbs. Add cheddar and buttermilk; stir the dough enough, so that it comes together

  • On a lightly floured surface, turn out the dough and divide it into equal halves, patting each one into a rectangle. Set aside a patted rectangle and cover it using a clean dish towel

  • Use your hands to work out the other rectangle, folding, flattening and repeating until the dough gets folded around 4 times. Keep patting until it gets 1 inch thick. Now cut out biscuits with the help of a 2-inch round cutter (or any other shape you like). Repeat the same process with the reserved piece of dough rectangle until all is cut into biscuits

  • Bake the biscuits using baking sheets until they get golden on top, usually taking 15 to 18 minutes
