Hello Dear Reader,
This is a can't be bothered to cook recipe. I really didn't want to cook when I got home, this cold has gone to my chest and standing up AND breathing is flippin' hard work right now. To be honest, if there had been a tin of tomato soup in the house, I would have had that instead but there wasn't!
I think everyone knows of Keema, it's just spicy minced meat and add something else so that exactly what I did. This will create six portions, so if I can't breath tomorrow, they we'll have a repeat performance of this again and we'll take some for lunch too. As I said, I really don't feel like standing in the kitchen and this is a eat with a spoon, out of a bowl easy meal that reheats well for other lazy days.
I had a pack of lean mince £2.09
6 medium potatoes, cut into large cubes - I used 2 baking potatoes 30p
2 small onions, finely chopped 14p
1 cup of frozen peas 9p
6 medium carrots, chopped into small cubes 30p
1 deseeded chilli - finely diced 12p
4 cloves of garlic, - finely diced 8p
1 heaped tablespoon of cumin 5p
2 tablespoons of corriander 10p
1 tablespoon of mild curry powder 5p
2 tins of chopped tomatoes - 62p
Fresh mint - out of the tub in the garden - we have mild weather.
Salt to taste - I added a teaspoon.
£3.94 - 66p per portion
(I bought all my ingredients in my local Aldi and that's how I've priced this)
1. Heat a pan.
2. Add the minced beef and onions - cook thoroughly.
3. Add raw potatoes and carrots, keep stirring.
4. Add the spices and keep stirring.
5. Add all the other ingredients, except the peas, cook for 20 minutes.
6. Add the peas and cook for a further 10 minutes.
When cooked, sprinkle with chopped mint and stir well.
If I had any yoghurt, then I would have made a Raita to go with this, we're running down the cupboards, fridge, freezer ect so we're trying not to shop. So, as I had some mango chutney, they I served it with a dollop of that instead. You could make this without potato and serve with rice but adding potato makes this a quick one pot meal. Let's face it, if I couldn't be bothered to cook then I really couldn't be bothered to wash up!
