  • 500g Ostrich Mince
  • 1 slice white bread soaked in 250 ml milk
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 40g butter
  • 20ml curry powder
  • 2,5ml turmeric
  • 30ml fruit chutney
  • 1⁄4 cup almonds, chopped or flaked
  • 1⁄4 cup raisins
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 200ml cream or plain yogurt
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 roll of phyllo or spring roll pastry, defrosted



  • Pre-heat the oven to 180oC.
  • Soak the bread in the milk.
  • Lightly brown the Ostrich mince in a hot pan using a little olive oil.
  • Cook the onion and apple slowly in the butter until soft, but not coloured.
  • Add the turmeric and curry powder and cook for one minute.
  • Mix the apple and onion with the meat, chutney, almonds, raisins, and lemon juice.
  • Drain and mash the bread, reserving the milk.
  • Mix the bread into the meat, using a fork, and season with salt and pepper.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the eggs with the reserved milk, as well as the cream or yogurt.
  • Pour this custard over the meat mixture in the pan, add the bay leaves and cook for a further
    5 minutes to give the custard mixture time to cook.
  • Cut the defrosted phyllo pastry into squares of approximately 15cm x 15cm.
  • Place generous spoonsful of the bobotie mixture in the centre bottom of each pastry square and start rolling it up like a cigar. Stop halfway to brush the pastry with melted butter.
  • Then fold the left and right sides inwards, securing the parcel by brushing it again with butter.
  • Continue rolling up the remaining pastry into a cigar shape.
  • Place on a well greased tray and bake for 30min or until browned.
