South African Bobotie is made with a curried mince with raisins and even apricot jam, covered with a savory custard and baked. It has a sweet, sour flavour rather than hot and spicy. This style of cooking is called 'Cape Malay' for it's Malaysian roots which became adapted in the Cape, in South Africa. It is traditionally served with 'Begrafnisrys' or Yellow Rice colored with turmeric.
Bobotie is a classic South African dish of gently-spiced ground meat full of raisins which is then oven-baked with a layer of savory egg custard on top to form a crust and keep the meat moist. Tradionally it is served with Yellow Rice. ♥ Cook Sisters!
