Fruity Bobotie (Microwave)

15ml butter or margarine
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
15ml curry powder
5ml tumeric powder
30ml lemon juice
350g minced meat (lamb or beef)
1 slice white bread (soaked in a little milk)
30ml apricot jam or fruit chutney
60ml seedless raisins
1 small cooking apple (peeled and grated)
1 ripe banana, mashed
50ml red wine or stock cube
salt to taste
3ml gravy browning
2 bay leaves

1 large egg
125 ml milk (fresh milk added to the excess milk drained from bread)

Place butter/margarine in a shallow glass dish, microwave on full
power (100%) for 30 seconds. Add onion and garlic, microwave on
full power for 3 minutes. Mix curry powder, tumeric & lemon juice
and add to onion. Blend well. Add mince, mix well with fork,
cover and microwave on full power for 3-4 minutes stirring once or
twice with fork to break up any lumps.

Drain milk from bread and set aside to use for topping. Mash soaked
bread with fork and add to meat mixture. Add apricot jam/chutney,
raisins, apple, banana, wine/stock, seasoning and gravy browning
and mix well. Cover and microwave on medium-high (70%) for 5
minutes, stirring once. Lightly grease glass dish and place mixture
in dish, smoothing and raising it slightly in the centre in such
a way that when the topping is added, most will settle around the
edges of the dish. Arrange the bay leaves on top of the bobotie

Beat the eggs and milk and pour the topping over the meat, microwave
the bobotie, uncovered, on medium power (50%) for 10 minutes or
until the topping has set. Bobotie can be frozen at this stage
(if required), provided it has cooled down completely beforehand.
Place in preheated oven (180C) for 10 minutes to brown topping
slightly before serving.
