Thanksgiving and Global Cuisine – Recipe Round-up

Frikadelles (South African Braised Meatballs)

    Yesterday we had a celebration in our Manila Spoon Facebook Page featuring Thanksgiving and International Recipes. What a happy day it was for we received so many lovely recipes! I love all the Thanksgiving dishes and the exotic and delicious global cuisine samples we got. I am sure that some of you would like to see these lovely recipes again, perhaps to try them yourselves or to use them as inspiration to create your own dish but it can be quite difficult to access them on the Facebook page itself. It’s certainly not going to be much fun scrolling down the page just to find the recipes you want so I thought I’d make a post of all the recipes we received with their corresponding photos and the links to the blogs they came from. I have posted these recipes according to the order I have received them. Hope you find this post helpful and do check out these lovely blogs. Many thanks again to all of you for making our Foodie Party a success!

Please note: To get the recipe, find the photo below of the yummy sweet treat you are looking for and then click on the link underneath. That should lead you to the recipe. This is a collection of recipes from our blog and other amazing food bloggers.

Good morning all! Here is a very yummy dish for you to make over the weekend for the whole family to enjoy! MY version of Bobotie, our National Dish.

Recipe: Bobotie

There is no better recipe than Bobotie to accompany this story. It is our national dish after all, and we do live in Africa. 

“Food for thought is no substitute for the real thing.” Walt Kelly

1 kg beef mince
1 thick slice of white bread, crust removed. Old bread tastes better.
250ml milk
2 medium chopped onions
2 tablespoons of curry powder
2 tablespoons of turmeric
Juice of 1 large lemon
4 tablespoons of apricot jam. If you can get home made ones, fantastic!
1 teaspoon of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of fresh, minced ginger
2 eggs
1 packet of flaked almonds
Some bay leaves or lemon tree leaves if you have them
Butter and vegetable oil for frying
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
Soak the bread in half of the milk until soft, and mash with a fork.
On the stove top, fry the 2 onions in a mixture of butter and vegetable oil.
Add the curry powder, turmeric and s&p and fry for a minute.
Add the lemon juice, brown sugar, half the apricot jam, ginger, soaked bread, flaked almonds and mince. Reduce heat.
Fry until the meat is browned and not clumpy anymore.
Pack the meat into an oven proof dish.
In a separate bowl, beast the eggs, remaining milk and remaining apricot jam together.
Pour this over the meat, stick in the bay or lemon leaves and bake for 30minor until done.

I usually serve Bobotie with rice cooked in coconut milk, bananas cut up and sprinkled with coconut, a bowl of chopped tomatoes (with or without onion) and a bowl of chutney.
