Pronounced 'ba-boor-tea', the dish of South Africa is a delicious mixture of curried meat and fruit with a creamy golden topping of a royale, a savoury custard. The mild curry and sweetness in the mince make this a favourite for the whole family. It can also be enjoyed with crusty bread instead of rice.

  • 300 g of Lamb Mince
  • 1 of Brown Onion
  • 1 of Garlic Clove
  • 2 Tbsp of Madras Curry Paste
  • 2 Tbsp of Raisins
  • 2 Tbsp of Mango Chutney
  • 14 Tsp of Bobotie Spice Mix
  • 12 Cup of Thickened Cream
  • 1 of Egg (pantry)
  • 12 Cup of Basmati Rice
  • 1 of Carrot
  • 60 g of Peas
  • 170 g of Broccoli

Prepare Ingredients:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Peel and dice 34 of the onion and garlic. Peel and cut carrot into 12 cm rounds. Cut broccoli into bite size florets. Put a pot of water on the stove to boil (for cooking the veg in step 5)

Brown Mince:

Heat oil in a pot over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, curry paste and spice mix. Sauté until fragrances are released and onion is soft, about 3 minutes. Add mince and raisins, breaking mince up with a wooden spoon. Cook until mince is browned all over, about 5 minutes. Add peas to the mince mixture, check seasoning and place into an oven proof dish.

Add Royale:

Pour cream into a small bowl, add egg and mix well to make a royale. Pour over the top of mince mixture and season with salt and pepper. Put in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes, until top is browned and egg mix is set.

Cook Rice:

In a pot, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Stir in the rice; cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes until all the water is absorbed. Cover the pot and let the rice absorb the water off the heat. Fluff the finished rice with a fork.

Cook Vegetables:

Add carrots to the pot of boiling water, after 1 minute add broccoli. Cook for 1 minute more, until broccoli is bright green (or to your liking).
