Bobotie : Christmas Special


Bobotie also spelt bobotjie, is a South African 
dish consisting of spiced minced meat baked
with an egg-based topping. Although not
particularly spicy, the dish incorporates a variety
of flavours that can add complexity. For
example, the dried fruit (usually apricots and
raisins/sultanas) contrasts the curry flavouring
very nicely. The texture of the dish should be
tender and creamy which means long, slow
cooking with the baked egg mixture topping, 
complementing the milk-soaked bread which
adds moisture to the dish.
