When you get back home from work with a tired and famished child in tow, who could fall asleep at any moment, you have only an hour or so to get dinner on the table. So you hunt down recipes that are nutritious, tasty, and quick. I got this one from the book Fat Free Indian by Shehzad Husain and Manisha Kanani.
- Minced meat-350 grams
- Ginger-garlic paste-2 teaspoons
- Turmeric-1/2 teaspoon
- Chilli powder-1 or 2 teaspoons
- Onions-1 large, chopped fine
- Green chillies-3
- Curry leaves - 10
- Tomato-1 large, cubed
- Coriander leaves-A handful, chopped
- Oil-2 teaspoons
- Salt to taste
In a bowl, combine the mince, ginger garlic paste, turmeric, chilli powder, salt.
Heat the oil in a frying pan.
Tip in the onions with the curry leaves and whole green chillies.
When it changes to light pink, tip in the mince and saute for 5 minutes till the water comes out.
Add the tomatoes and coriander leaves.
Leave to simmer until cooked dry.
Serve hot with accompaniments of your choice.
