Friday morning I wake up to less than half a cup of leftover minced lamb prepared last night. The night before after the dinner it felt like there was enough for the lunch next day and I lazed around till the peak lunch hour. That was not enough for one person and I had 3 to feed. Apparently my mind works faster under panic situations and may be that is one of the reason I'm getting through the masters. The recipe for the Indian mutton minced is similar to preparing Indian Mutton Stew. The only difference being that after the tomatoes you add the minced meat and it cooks in half the time and without water. This works for all kinds of minced meats, so you don't really have to wait till you have Indian mutton minced but yes it would be lovely if you did.
Also, I can think in panic situations but I don't click. So forgive the lack of photographs.I don't know what to call it? I'm sure its not a unique technique and has a name! But I'm ignorant so please do suggest if you did know.
Leftover Minced Meat Serves : 2-3
1/2 cup Minced Mutton
2 large size potatoes
3-4 tbsp Olive oil
1 large tomato
1/2 tsp steak seasoning
1/2 tsp turmeric
2 sprigs spring onions
Cheddar Cheese for garnish (about 4-5 tbsp)
Peel and slice the potatoes to the thinnest possible and arrange it a frying pan with olive oil overlapping each other and covering the base in every which way. You don't have to be all fancy here, but arranging in a pattern helps to make a strong base. Season with salt and Steak seasoning (or just black pepper). Let it cook for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile whisk the egg with the turmeric and salt to taste. Pour it over the potato base. Since the base is hot, the eggs will cook away fast and before it gets over cooked spread the leftover meat on the top.
Arrange the thin slices of tomatoes on the meat and top it with cheese. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Garnish with spring onions.( I just never seem to have the patience to chop spring onions in an orderly manner)
Everyone loved it! And with eggs, potatoes and tomatoes, it was a very affordable meal.
