  • Minced Meat Curry, Sri Lankan Muslim Style!

    This one's thanks to my mum & dad! I'll be bugging my parents and posting more Sri Lankan Muslim recipes in the near future Insha-Allah!

    Minced Meat Curry, Sri Lankan Muslim Style!
    SIMPLIFIED VERSION

    Mince meat curry is done in six stages.

    Stage 1: Preparing and collecting ingredients

    a) Wash the minced meat and leave it in a colander so that all the water is drained away. If you have no colander, don't wash it, because you will have problems of water retention in the last stages of cooking. It is clean meat anyway.

    b) Cut a whole onion into small pieces.

    c) Cut one garlic clove into small pieces.

    d) Cut a small piece of ginger - if possible, crush it.

    e) Cut two or three tomatoes into small pieces, or you may use tinned whole tomatoes.

    f) Keep your black pepper, yellow powder, yoghurt, paprika powder, salt & oil ready for use.

    Stage 2: Oil stage

    a) Put sufficient oil in a pan and put it on a low fire. For one pound of minced meat, 4 tablespoons of oil is sufficient.

    b) When the oil is boiling, add the onion, garlic and ginger, and stir until it browns up.

    Stage 3: Minced meat stage

    Add the minced meat to the pan and stir it with a wooden spoon if available, for 3 minutes.

    Stage 4: Tomato, spices & yoghurt stage

    Add the tomato, one flat teaspoon of black pepper, one teaspoon full of paprika, and two tablespoons full of yoghurt.

    Stage 5: Salt stage

    Add sufficient salt to suit your taste.

    Stage 6: Final Stage

    Leave to simmer for 10-15 minutes on a low fire.

    If you like it hot

    If you like it hot, add chilli powder instead of paprika at stage 4, or add a chopped green chilli at stage 2.

    Troubleshooting

    If you find the mince letting out water at stage three, increase the fire and keep stirring until the excess water evaporates. Then, at stage 6, you will need to lessen the amount of time you leave it to simmer, because the meat would have already cooked well on a high fire. In this case, 5 minutes of simmering may be good enough.

    Good luck and ma'selama! :)

    When you say mince meat, are you talking about

    canned mince meat? Hamburger grind meat? or other, because I would like to get my wife to make this recipe! Sounds great!

      Erm, all I know is that my mum asks the butcher to put the meat through the mincing machine!

          I think we call that chili grind.

          Not as fine as hamburger meat and leaves a bigger chunk. Thanks, I'll try it with the Chili grind which is meat ground about the size of a penny! Very lean and absorbs the seasonings! Thanks baba! Have you ever had Mexican chili or picadillo? Your dish sounds similar!

              Minced meat tip

              OK, I just asked my dad and he told me this:

              The minced meat that the butcher sells is usually leftovers put through the mincing machine.

              You should get a leg of lamb (the leg has more meat), ask the butcher to separate the meat from the bone, and then mince the meat (i.e. put through the mincing machine) especially for you.
