Every evening the chefs of Ku Sungula serve our guests delicious meals. Of course, these are often typical South African delicacies. The local dish bobotie, an oven dish with spiced minced meat, is a favourite with many of our guests. Served with rice and butternut pumpkin, it makes for a delicious main course. Want to create a South African ambiance at home? Chef Lucy shares her bobotie recipe with you.
bobotie (4 people)
- 500 g minced meat
- 1 large onion (chopped)
- 1 garlic clove (crushed)
- 20 ml medium curry powder
- 2.5 ml turmeric
- 1 ml ground coriander
- 1 ml ground ginger
- 1 ml mixed spices
- pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1 green apple (unpeeled, cut into pieces)
- 2 slices of white bread, crusts removed
- 125 ml milk
- 5 ml salt
- 5 ml baking powder
- 3 tablespoons of apricot jam
- 15 ml vinegar
- 2 teaspoons of stock powder
- 1 egg
- 2 eggs
- 250 ml milk
- 1 ml salt
Put the onion and garlic in a pan and fry until brown. Add the minced meat and keep stirring so it remains loose and crumbly until it browns. Add the curry powder, turmeric, coriander, spices and cayenne pepper and stir well to combine. Now add the apple pieces.
Pour the milk on the bread slices to make them wet, then add them to the mince mixture together with all other ingredients. Stir well and add more spices to taste. Put the mixture in a baking dish and smooth the top.
Mix the ingredients for the topping well and pour the mixture over the meat.
Bake in the oven at 170 ˚C for 30 minutes, or until the topping is done.
Serve with rice and salad for a delicious South African meal. Enjoy your meal!
