Bobotie (pronunciation: Ba-boo-eh-tee)

from Tracy Cox

1 kg mince (2.2 lbs ground beef)
2 onions, sliced (I use 1 - for those of you that know me, even that much is a surprise!)
25 g butter (1 1/2 Tbsp)
20 ml curry powder (4 tsp)
3ml turmeric (heaping 1/2 tsp)
2 slices white bread, crust removed
250 ml chutney (1 Cup)
30 ml vinegar (2 Tbsp)
15 ml brown sugar (1 Tbsp)
10 ml salt (2 tsp)
3 bay leaves
300 ml milk (1 1/4 cup)
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 180C (350F). Fry onions in butter until soft. Add curry powder and turmeric and cook for 2 minutes. Add mince and brown. In bowl, soak the bread in 60 ml (1/4 Cup) milk and mash with a fork. Add 1 beaten egg, chutney, vinegar, sugar and salt. Add to the meat mixture. Transfer to a greased baking dish and spread evenly. Arrange leaves on top. In a bowl, mix the remaining milk and 2 eggs and pour over the mince. Bake for 30 minutes.

The last time I made it I browned the mince separate so that I could drain it, and then I added it to the onions/spices. It still worked great!
