On Sunday I made some bobotie and we had the leftovers for dinner tonight. It is a typical South African dish mainly consisting of mince meat with raisins and covered with an egg-milk mixture, baked in the oven.


We got a packet with the recipe and most of the required spices in South Africa when we last visited in February, and all the remaining ingredients are readily available here in the UK, including the South African chutney brand Mrs. Balls. I think it may be the only product on British supermarket shelves with Afrikaans instructions on it: "Skud die bottel"!
