(Mince meat and potatoes)

I’m sharing my mom’s recipe that I have always used to as my go to if I needed a quick filler dish to a dinner table

that has last minute guests or for those days when I want to cook something easy and fast.



Chicken Mince Meat: thawed. ½ kg

Potatoes: 2 medium peeled and dicedaloo keema 4

Ginger: 2 inch long piece cut in long thin strips

Garlic: 6 cloves Crushed

Green Chilies: 6

Black Pepper corn

Tomatoes: 3 large blended smooth

Onions: 2 Chopped


Salt: To Taste (I use about 3/4 teaspoon adding more in the end if required)

Red Chili Powder: To Taste (I use 1 ½ teaspoon)

Turmeric Powder: To Taste (I use ¼ teaspoon)



Take a wok and heat oil before adding the chopped onions and pepper corns to it.

Sautee till onions are light brown and then add the crushed garlic. Add 1/2 cup water and then salt,

red chilies and turmeric powder. Add the mincemeat and cook for 5 minutes and then add the

potatoes and the tomatoes together. Now cook this well for at least 10 minutes so that tomatoes

form a gravy and the potatoes take on a rich red roasted look and flavor.

Add the green chilies and check the potatoes. As they are often likely to be slightly under cooked.

Add half a cup of water and simmer on a low heat. Check the salt to perfect the taste



You can add Chopped coriander leaves before serving as garnishing If your family likes spicy food you can also

garnish with mixed ground spices (Garam Masala Powder).

Serve this with Buttered roti or roti with some olive oil to impress your guests or for growing children.

Serve with white boiled Rice for some Pizazz.
