Had this with the bootie and yellow rice - bit bland.

Great accompaniment to the bobotie and yellow rice but I made with a red chilli rather than green and it was really spicy, would go for the green option the next time and would probably try the apricot blatjang to give the full mix of flavours. Excellent weekend menu.
