Bobotie {African dish}

Bobotie is a South Africa dish made with spiced ground beef, raisins and a special egg-based top. This was the first time I have ever eaten Bobotie! It for sure won't be my last. I can't wait to eat it tonight for leftovers!    With the beef and the raisins it has great flavour! I have never tasted anything like it. Sweet and delish. Feeling like cooking something different tonight, try this out! Also don't be intimidated by the curry, it's not spicy at all.
You need:

  • 2 onions finely choped
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 kg ground beef
  • 1/4 cup of milk + 3/4 milk
  • 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 tbsps sugar
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp tumeric
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 3 tbsp peach or mango chutney
  • 4 bay leaves
  • cooked rice to eat on the side
  • 2 eggs
Step one:
Put the chopped onions in a pan with the oil. Fry on medium-high heat. Add the ground beef & cook until brown all the way through.

Step two:
Add 1/4 cup of milk, breadcrumbs, sugar, curry powder, salt, pepper, tumeric, lemon juice, raisins, & peach chutney to the ground beef.
Step three:
Place the beef mixture into a baking dish. Place 4 bay leaves on top. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes uncovered.

Step four:
While the beef is baking beat together 2 eggs & 3/4 cup of milk in a small bowl. Once the beef has been baked for 15 minutes, take it out & pour the egg/milk mixture on top of it. Bake for an additional 20 minutes.
Serve with white rice. Also add chutney, chopped apples, chopped pears, dried apricots, peaches, coconut & peanuts. I know it sounds different, but it tastes really good. It is always fun to try something new!
