    10ml   oil
    ½        onion, finely chopped
    250g   beef mince
    1 tsp   curry powder
    ½ tsp  salt
    ½ tsp  pepper
    2 tsp   sugar
    1 tbsp vinegar
    1 tbsp chutney
    ½ cup (125ml) water
    ¼ cup seedless raisins (optional)

    Egg layer
    2 eggs, beaten
    60ml cream
    Salt and black pepper, to taste
    30g butter, melted
    Crispy rice cup:
    1 cup Spekko India Gate Basmati Rice
    2 ½ cups water
    1 cup yoghurt
    3 egg yolks

    Bay leaves
    Specialised equipment: Muffin tin


    Rice cups

    1. Cook Spekko India Gate Basmati Rice according to the pack instructions.
    2. Mix the yoghurt and egg yolks together. Add them to the rice and mix. Set aside.
    3. Soak bread in the milk.
    4. Heat the oil in a saucepan and fry the onion until soft. Add the mince and fry until well browned.
    5. Stir in the curry powder and season with salt and pepper. Squeeze the milk out of the bread and crumble the soggy bread into the mince.
    6. Add the sugar, vinegar, chutney, raisins and ½ cup water to the mince. Stir and allow it to simmer for 10 minutes or until the mince is cooked and the mixture is almost dry, but still moist.


    Egg layer

    1. Whisk the eggs, cream, remaining milk from the soaked bread, salt, pepper and butter together until well combined.



    1. Spoon the rice into a greased muffin tray, spread it evenly but not too thinly, pressing up the sides.
    2. Bake for 30 minutes at 180°C and remove from the oven.
    3. Add a generous spoonful of mince into each rice cup and smooth the top, keeping enough space at the rim of the cup for the custard topping.
    4. Pour the custard over the top of each bobotie cup and top with a bay leaf.
    5. Allow to stand for 5 minutes and bake for a further 10 minutes or until the custard has set.
