South African Bobotie with Carrot Sambal ~ Koeksisters

This month we've got some delicious dishes from South Africa. For the main event, bobotie - best described as a sort of South African curried version of moussaka! It has a mixed heritage - the meat is thought to have been introduced by the Dutch, the curried flavours are of Indian origin and the presentation is rather like a British cottage pie. On the side we've got a speedy version of blatjang - a Cape Malay spiced apricot chutney - and a refreshing and tangy carrot salad. Finally we’ve got koeksisters, South Africa's answer to the doughnut, which literally translates as ‘cake sizzler’ - flavoured with aniseed and drenched in a syrup of cassia and orange.
