Bobotie (Buh-BOO-tee) is a really delicious, mild-to-medium spice dish originating in South Africa. Basically, it's curried beef and banana. It's a baked curry, although part of the preparation needs to be done on the stove. It pairs nicely with long grain Basmati rice. You can do it in individual dishes like pictured if you like, or in a large baking dish or a Dutch oven, it's up to you. In any case, the visual is roughly the same.
