Ground beef and onion blended with almonds, raisins and chutney. Then seasoned with curry powder and turmeric. Shaped into a loaf and baked. Serve with steamed rice and chutney.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 2 onions, thickly sliced
- 1 slice white bread
- 1 cup milk
- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (optional)
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 3 tablespoons chutney
- 6 almonds, chopped
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 4 bay leaves
In a large skillet, pour in just enough water to cover the bottom. Bring to a boil and add the onion slices. Cook until the onions appear translucent. Remove the onions and finely chop them. Drain water from pan and return to the heat. Return the onions to the hot pan and brown slightly. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Soak the slice of bread quickly in the milk and squeeze it out. Set the drained milk aside. Crumb the bread. Place in a large mixing bowl. Mix bread together with ground beef, curry powder, 1 egg, sugar, salt, black pepper, turmeric, vinegar, chutney, almonds and raisins.
Place the mixture in a greased 7x11 inch baking dish. Insert the bay leaves into the meat. Bake in a preheated oven for 1 hour.
Beat the remaining egg with 3 tablespoons of the drained milk. Pour over the meat and bake for another 30 minutes.
