    Hi looking for a pork mince curry recipe, have looked through the previous threads but can't seem to find one. Even better if I can just chuck it in my slow cooker

    Thanks

    KEEMA CURRY

    Keema is Hindi for minced meat and it sounds so much more exotic than Minced Meat Curry.

    Serves 2 to 3


    INGREDIENTS

    200g of new potatoes
    1 clove of garlic
    1cm (½ inch) piece of fresh ginger
    2 onions
    1 tablespoon of oil
    1 teaspoon of chilli powder
    250g of minced meat
    200g (½ a 400g tin) of plum tomatoes*
    1 teaspoon of garam masala
    ½ a teaspoon of turmeric
    50g of peas
    125ml of water

    METHOD

    Wash and scrub the potatoes, and chop them into 1cm (½ inch) pieces. Peel the garlic and chop it into tiny pieces. Peel the ginger and chop it into tiny pieces. Peel the onions and chop them into tiny pieces.

    Put the oil into a saucepan on a low heat. Put the chilli powder, garlic, ginger, mince, onions and potatoes into the pan. Cook for about 30 minutes until the mince is an even colour, with no pink bits. Stir frequently to stop it sticking.

    Open the tin of tomatoes. Put the juice into a bowl. Chop the tomatoes while they are still in the can (it’s easier than chasing them around the bowl). Put the chopped tomatoes into the bowl. Put half the chopped tomatoes into the pan and save the other half.

    Add the garam masala, turmeric, peas and water. Stir thoroughly.

    Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat until it is just boiling (simmering). Put the lid on the saucepan and cook for 15 minutes. Check the water level from time to time and top up if it starts to dry out.

    ADDITIONS & ALTERNATIVES

    Use minced beef, lamb, pork or turkey, whichever is cheapest. If the pack is a bit less than required, make up the difference with some finely chopped mushrooms, added at the same time as the meat.

    Both the peas and the potatoes are traditional ingredients. You can omit either, but not both. If you omit the potatoes, increase the quantity of mince and peas to compensate. Use fresh, frozen or tinned peas. Use fresh, frozen or tinned new potatoes.

    The quantity of chilli powder above makes for a medium curry. For a hot one, increase this to 1½ teaspoons. For a mild one, add 100ml (½ a 200ml pot) of yoghurt 5 to 10 minutes before the end of cooking. Add ½ a teaspoon of mint sauce to the leftover yoghurt to make some mint raita.
     
    * Plum tomatoes can be used either whole or chopped. It is difficult to stick chopped tomatoes back together again if you need to use them whole.
