1 Prep

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Chop the ciabatta and add it to a bowl with the milk. Set aside to soak. Finely chop the onions and garlic. Wash the lemon thoroughly and grate its zest with a fine blade, taking care to avoid its bitter white pith. Juice the lemon

2 Fry

Heat a pan over a medium heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the onions with a pinch of salt and fry for 5 min or until soft. Add the stock cubecurry powder, dried oregano, cumin, turmeric and beef and cook for 5 min until browned.

5 Bake

Add the eggs to the milk, whisk and season with salt and pepper. Pour the egg mix over the meat and scatter with the bay leaves. Bake for 35 min or until golden brown. This is your bobotie

6 Serve

Meanwhile, chop the tomatoes and cucumbers finely. Peel and slice the shallots. Place the cucumber, tomatoes, raisins and shallots in a bowl with a pinch of salt. Drizzle with olive oil and toss. Once the bobotie is baked, allow it to cool for 5 min before serving alongside the salad

Tips for fussy eaters

Replace the milk soaked bread with sweet potato mash!

Pro tip

Use a spatula or large spoon to flatten the beef mixture. This will ensure the custard spreads evenly.

Enjoy this comforting, rich, aromatic meal full of African flavours!
