Cooking Bobotie South African Family Food.

Bobotie is the most delicious family meal. It is quick, easy and tasty.

1kg mince,

2 large apples,

2 large onions,

4 rounded teaspoons of mild curry powder.

2 good handfuls of sultanas.

2 -4 thick bread slices

2 eggs

1 cup of milk/soy milk.

Soak the bread in the milk. Core the apples and roughly chop the apples and onions. Heat a splodge of olive oil in a large pan and cook the apples and onion together until the onions are soft and everything is starting to look golden. Add the 4 teaspoons of curry powder stir through gently and cook all together until fragrant.

This is where the flavour in your dish comes from.

Remove from pan and quickly brown the mince add it to the apples and onions. Add the sultanas, squeeze the excess milk from the bread and stir that gently through the mix, salt and pepper to taste.

Cover and bake in oven  for around 30 to 40 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.  You can leave it here and put it in the fridge then reheat  in one or two days. If your a busy mum

Beat two eggs with leftover milk pour gently over meat mixture place back into over without lid and cook for a further 15 to 20 mins.

Serve with rice and Indian chutneys.

Many bobotie recipe include the chutney in the meat mix, I prefer to serve it separately as I believe the flavour of the chutney gets lost
