    Cora_and_Clarice's Note:

    This is my own vegetarian adaptation of the traditional Cape Malay dish of my country. I have tried to approximate flavour and texture as closely as possible and have retained all the ingredients my mother used when making it - aside from the mince, of course :) This project has been very important to me as most of the vegetarian versions I have found online so far are rather inaccurate. Bobotie was one of my favourite dishes as a child and I wanted to preserve and share that memory as much as I could.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    For the topping

    • 3 eggs
    • 100 -150 ml milk (not entirely sure about the amount as I do it by feel, your topping should have a very pale yellow c)
    • 2 bay leaves (I tear mine up a bit, but some people put them in whole, up to you)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Rinse lentils until water runs clear.
    2. 2
      Cover lentils with water and pre-cook for 30min (you may need to top the water up from time to time).
    3. 3
      Drain lentils.
    4. 4
      Preheat oven to 150C.
    5. 5
      Saute onion and tomato.
    6. 6
      Add curry, tumeric, salt and pepper.
    7. 7
      Cook for 1-2 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add raisins, almonds, chutney, onion and tomato to lentils.
    9. 9
      Mix and place in baking dish.
    10. 10
      Shake up topping ingredients and pour over lentils.
    11. 11
      Place in oven and bake for 1-1/2 hours (egg topping should have risen all the way to the middle)
    12. 12
      Please note:.
    13. 13
      I spice my bobotie mildy and use a slightly sweet sultana chutney - one preference found in the Cape. Some people make theirs hotter and use Mrs. Ball's Original Chutney, which is very tasty and is less sweet. I recommend you experiment, but remember, the dish should be spicy as in flavoursome, not as in burn-your-mouth.
    14. 14
      Also, adding a bit more diced onion will add more texture to the lentils.

      I had just exactly the homemade raisin chutney I needed for this recipe, but then I make a lot of different ones & usually have 5-6 kinds on hand! Also used almost all of the 2/3 cup of milk suggested for the topping, & was very satisfied with the results! Oh, yes, I did cut back a little on the amount of curry, but that was about it! This is definitely something I'd like to make & enjoy again! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
