This is a quick and easy 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 made in no time at all in your microwave oven and it could be eaten with Rice or Chapattis. Any meat mince such as beef, mutton, lamb, pork or even chicken mince could be used. Green Peas, chopped cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, fenugreek / methi / venthium greens etc., could be added to give the dish a twist. This recipe is featured in my new Cookery Book THE MICROWAVE COOK BOOK OF ANGLO-INDIAN RECIPES


½ kg Beef Mince / Ground Beef or Lamb Mince

1 big onion chopped finely

1 teaspoon chillie powder

½ teaspoon turmeric powder

1 teaspoon chopped garlic

1 teaspoon chopped ginger

2 green chilies chopped finely

2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves

2 or 3 tablespoons oil

Salt to taste


 Mix the Beef Mince with all the ingredients in a large microwave bowl

Refrigerate for one hour or more. When ready to cook, remove from the fridge

 Cover the dish with a lid with holes or plastic wrap, leaving one side unsealed for venting.   

Microwave on high for 5 minutes.

 Remove and mix well to break up the minced beef / ground beef. Microwave again on medium heat for 6 minutes more till done with 3-minute rests.

Serve as a side with rice or chapattis, bread, dinner Rolls etc.
