    mersaydees's Note:

    A South African dish, this recipe is based on one from The Encyclopedia of Creative Cooking, edited by Charlotte Turgeon. Serve with rice and chutney. The book I used spelled it "Bobotee", but I changed it to match the current 'Zaar names for this dish. Updated 11/5/11 to include OAMC freezing directions per Erindipity's request.

      My husband and I were looking for something different one night and tried this. We both really enjoyed it! Different combination of flavors but yummy! We will make it again!

      Made for freezer tag challenge: This is a very interesting recipe. The flavor is very intense and if you do not like curry it is not the dish for you. The taste by itself is too much and you really need the rice and chutney to cut the intensity. I will also say, unless you have a more adventerous child than I do, this is not a child friendly dish. Overall though, my husband and I both enjoyed it very much. I don't know if I will make it again though as my daughter would not eat it. To freeze: complete through step 10. Allow to cool. Cover with foil. Freeze. To serve: thaw overnight. Bake at 350 for 15-30 minutes or until heated through. Serve with rice and chutney. Weight Watchers: 6 pts per serving using lean ground beef and ff milk.

      I enjoyed making this dish for the Aussie/Kiwi Swap of 2007. The dish was light and fluffy, and easy to make.
