Bobotie

Often referred to as South Africa's national dish, Bobotie has traveled from Indonesia via Dutch merchants to Cape Town, with recipes appearing in Dutch cookbooks as early as 1609.

A delicious variation on meatloaf, Bobotie is spiced with fragrant curry and topped with an egg custard.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices of stale white bread, crusts removed
  • Water
  • 2 tablespoons Sunflower oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 lb ground meat (beef or combination of beef, lamb & pork)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 bay leaves for garnish
  • For the topping
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 1/2 cup of milk

  1. Soak the bread in water for 10 minutes, then squeeze dry.

  3. Add cloves, garlic, salt, curry powder and turmeric and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Add to ground meat with eggs, hot water, lemon juice and sugar.  Mix to combine well.
