Minced Meat Curry is an Indian cuisine. It’s made with lots of spices like turmeric, cinnamon, cumin, coriander and dried red chili flakes. Hmm.. It seems that I’m cooking a lot of spicy food these few months..

Serves:  6

Ingredients:

  • 500 g minced beef or lamb or pork  (I used half minced beef and half minced pork)
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp ground tumeric
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 2 tsp dried red chili flakes
  • 1 can (400g) crushed tomatoes or passata
  • 300ml beef or lamb or pork stock
  • 150g baby spinach leaves
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • abt 3 tbsp vegetable oil

Preparation:

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Sautee onions till transparent, abt 3-4 mins.
  2. Add minced garlic and ginger. Then add cinnamon, turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder and chilli flakes, stirring into the onions to mix completely, cook for abt 3 mins.
  3. Add minced meat, continue stirring and mixing meat with onions and spices.
  4. After abt 5 mins or when meat turns slightly brown, add potatoes, tomatoes/passata and stock.
  5. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for abt 20 mins, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add in spinach and heat thru for 1 min, just till spinach wilts.
  7. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, if necessary.
  8. Serve immediately with white rice.

 

 

This is what I found out after doing a search on the benefits of consuming spiced food:

  • spicy food helps to prevent degeneration of the brain and nervous system
  • helps with prevention of depression and migraine
  • helps increase metabolism which is an important factor in weight loss function
  • uses for pain and inflammation management
  • good for blood circulation
  • lowers blood pressure
  • cancer prevention (Capsaicin, an active component of chili peppers, attack and kill cancer cells)
  • improves digestion
  • improves sleep pattern

So, I guess in a way, it’s really good that both Dunster and I love spicy food.. 😛
