Minced Meat and Split Pea Curry Recipe

Minced Meat and Split Pea Curry Recipe

Ingredients :

500 g mince meat

1/2 cup split peas

2 tablespoons ghee

2 medium onions, chopped finely

3 cloves garlic, chopped finely

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated finely

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped

4 small ripe tomatoes, chopped

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons garam masala


Method :

Wash and soak the split peas while preparing the other ingredients. Heat a wok with ghee and gently fry the garlic, ginger and onions until soft. Add turmeric, cilantro, chili powder, tomatoes and salt. Stir over moderate heat for a few minutes. Then add the meat and drain split peas. Stir until well mixed, then cover tightly and cook for 40 minutes or until meat and peas are tender, stirring from time to time and adding a little hot water if liquid evaporates. Add garam masala and cook until liquid evaporates and mixture fries in the fat left in the pan. At this stage stir frequently so it does not burn. Serve this dry curry with Indian bread and other accompaniments such as vegetable preparations, sambals.
