MINCE CURRY WITH GREEN PEAS
A quick and simple dish to cook when one has a packet of mince handy in the fridge but not too keen on making a Ball Curry. This simple and tasty dish could be eaten with Rice or Chapattis. Any meat mince such as beef, mutton, lamb or even chicken mince could be used in this dish. Chopped cabbage, chopped carrot, cauliflower, fenugreek / methi / venthium greens etc can be substituted for the green peas.

Heat oil in a pan and sauté the onions, chopped garlic and green chilies. Add the mince and fry for some time. Now add the chillie powder, cumin powder, chopped tomato, turmeric powder and salt and keep on frying till the mince is firm. Add the green peas and sufficient water for gravy and cook on low heat till the gravy is thick and mince is cooked. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
