Bobotie is a very old South African dish with probable origins in Indonesia or Malaysia. The name derives from the Indonesian "bobotok," and the dish was likely adapted by Dutch traders and brought back to the region around Cape Town.
Bobotie is typically served with "geelrys" (yellow rice) which is traditionally prepared with turmeric, raisins, and sometimes a little coconut milk. Various relishes can also accompany this dish e.g. raw grated carrot salad, grated coconut, chutneys , chopped peanuts or simply a green salad.
