                         Milk
    2                    Onions -- thinly sliced
    1                    Apple -- peeled and diced
    2      tablespoons   Butter
    1      pound         Ground lamb
    2      tablespoons   Sugar
    2      tablespoons   Cider vinegar
      1/4  teaspoon      Salt
      1/4  teaspoon      Black pepper
      1/4  cup           Raisins
    2                    Eggs
   12                    Blanched almonds -- coarsely
 					
    6                    Kaffir lime leaves
    1      cup           Milk
    1      teaspoon      Turmeric
                         Cooked white rice (opt)
                         Chutney (opt)
 
 This curry-flavored meatloaf recipe made the rounds years ago, when kaffir
 lime leaves were unknown here. Most people used bay leaves instead, or even
 lemon oro range leaves from a backyard tree.
 However, it takes the kaffir leaves to add the proper touch of delicate,
 lemony perfume.
 
  Soak bread in bowl with milk to cover until soft, then squeeze dry.
 Saute onions and apple in skillet with butter until tender and not browned.
 Add bread, lamb, curry powder, sugar, vinegar, salt, pepper and raisins. Add
 one beaten egg and almonds and mix thoroughly.
 
  Pack mixture lightly into 9x5 baking dish. Arrange lime leaves on top.
 Bake at 350'F. 1 hour. Beat remaining egg with milk. Stir in turmeric. Pour
 over meatloaf and bake 15 minutes longer. Serve with rice and chutney.
