Bobotie is a traditional South African Dish. Its origin is unknown, although we know that the word originates from the Indonesian word bobotok of which a recipe appears in a 1609 Dutch recipe book. Initially the Cape Malay introduced it in South Africa, but after that every generation changed and smoothed it out to what it is today.
Preheat oven to 180?C (350F).
Grease a big ovenproof dish (? 23 x 33cm and about 5-6cm deep).
Heat the oil in a pot and fry onions over medium heat until soft and starting to colour.
Add spices (Curry powder, Tumeric, Coriander, Cumin, Ginger, Cinnamon) and cook for another minute.
Add the garlic and beef and stir well, crushing the mince into fine grains until it changes colour.
Flavour with salt and peper and add rest of the seasonings(Lemon Juice, Apricot jam, Chutney, Brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, Tomato paste) as well as the bread, raisins and appel.
Let everything come to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Tip into the ovenproof dish and press the lemon/bay leaves into the mixture.
For the topping, beat the milk and eggs with seasoning, then pour over the meat.
Bake for 35-40 mins until the topping is set and starting to turn golden. Let it stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Serve with yellow rice, chutney and sambals like chopped tomato & onions or banana slices and fine coconut.
