Directions

Heat the butter in a skillet over moderate heat and saute the onion and apple until tender but not brown, about 5 minutes. Add the beef and cook until browned. Squeeze the milk from the bread, discard the milk, and add the bread to the meat mixture, stirring and mashing it to mix it well. Remove from the heat and add the beaten egg, raisins, almonds, lemon juice, curry powder, and turmeric, stirring to combine. Place the mixture in a greased baking dish and place the bay leaves vertically in the mixture. Bake in a preheated 325F (165C) oven for 40 minutes. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the meat mixture and bake an additional 15 minutes. Remove the bay leaves before serving. Serves 4 to 6.
