Recipe: Bobotie (South African Meatloaf)

Not your regular meatloaf This sweet and savory loaf is enhanced with the textures of raisins and almonds and the spiciness of curry. Pleasantly different. If using high quality curry, use 1 1/2 tablespoons; most store bought curries are not as flavorful so use more. If looking for more sweetness, try adding apricot preserves or a fruit chutney.

How to Make Bobotie (South African Meatloaf)

Bobotie (South African Meatloaf) Reviews

  • This was fantastic Mild curry flavor that is balanced perfectly with the nuts and raisins. I used regular raisins since I didnt have golden raisins. Family loved it

  • Excellent THe taste was wonderful, made it when my picky daughter and pickier grandson came to visit, they both loved it. Has a savory and fruity flavor mix that cant be beat. I wasnt sure about pouring the egg on the outside, but it made an interesting touch and my 5 yr old grandson actually requested more of this part of the loaf This is definitely on the staple recipe list at our house

  • Fantastic recipe despite the fact that I made some small changes. Used bread instead of oats. Doubled curry powder to make it more curry taste.

  • This was quite tasty and unique. I followed the recipe and it turned out beautiful and my family loved it too We all loved the curry. Will definitely make it again

  • The recipe is good, especially when you ran out of healthy ground beef recipes, but next time I would add 1 more teaspoon of salt and maybe reduce oats and milk to get more meaty taste.

  • I followed this recipe to the letter I am sorry

  • I made it as written except I left out the raisins. It had good flavor but it was too dry.

  • This was good... but my family prefers more traditional meatloaves. I subbed Thompson raisins for golden and omitted nuts. I thought the egg topping at the end didnt really add anything to the dish, so Id skip it if I make it again.
