South African National Dish, made with beef or lamb, garlic, ginger, curry powder chopped onions, raisin, apricots and Mr. Balls chutney. Traditionally, bobotie is topped with an egg and potato topping and garnished with a bay leaf. Although not particularly spicy, the dish incorporates a variety of flavours that can add complexity. For example, the dried fruit (apricots and raisins) contrasts the curry flavouring. The texture of the dish is also complex, the baked egg mixture topping complementing the potato which adds moisture to the dish. Bobotie is served with "yellow rice", which is rice cooked with turmeric.
