Southern African recipes: A traditional Bobotie (Cape Town)
If there is a typical Capetonian dish, it is the Bobotie. A Bobotie consists of spiced minced meat, chutney, raisins and is baked with an egg-based topping. The dish was introduced to Cape Town and South Africa by colonists from the Dutch East India Company, who learned to love it while staying in Batavia (Jakarta). It was later, at least since the late 17th century, adopted by the Cape Malay community of Cape Town and is until today one of South Africa's most favourite local dishes. Enjoy!
