Babotie (South African Curry)

2 lbs. cooked ground beef or turkey
1 thick slice of bread, soaked in 1 cup milk
2 medium onions, diced
1 Tbsp sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp curry powder (I use Rajah brand, but I'm sure any would work
2 Tbsp vinegar (whatever kind you prefer)
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
Fry onion in butter until translucent. Add curry powder, salt, sugar, vinegar, raisins, and meat.
Drain milk from bread and save milk. Mash bread with fork and add to meat mixture. Add 1 egg, slightly beaten. Mix well.
Place mixture in a greased pie or baking dish (I usually divide into two smaller pans since it serves 6 and our family is still small). Beat remaining egg with leftover milk. Pour on top of meat mixture.
Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Serve over rice and garnish with tomatoes.
