I made this today thinking I'd add it to my pasta bake and then half way through changed my mind because of sheer laziness. Had it with roti, curd and pickle instead, and not complaining one bit. The recipe however makes a common appearance in my bakes and wraps and I thought it should be mentioned in my blog, even though it isn't the most unique of recipes.
If its a veggies bake, I add all sorts of other veggies like cauli, broc, carrots and peas and then pour white sauce over it, bake it and then sprinkle some cheese on top and grill for a few minutes. It is one of my favourite bakes and I can vouch it will never let you down, if you have the white sauce consistency right :)
On the other hand, if its a pasta dish I fancy, I just toss it in with the cooked pasta, sprinkle some parmesan cheese and it makes a delicious dinner.
For a wrap, heat a large tortilla wrap for 3 secs in the microwave, arrange the mince meat on it, generously sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top, roll it up, slice it in half and you are ready to go. Ro's favourite lunch time snack.
Lean steak mince- 500 gms
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Pepper powder- 1 tsp
Ginger garlic paste- 1 tbsp
Meat masala- 1/2 tsp (optional)
Salt- to taste
Baby spinach- 4 cups, washed
Mix all these ingredients along with the mince meat and cook in a pressure cooker for about 15 to 20 minutes, or for about 2 whistles on medium heat. Add about 1/4 cup water if needed. The cooking and water required depends on the meat, so do accordingly.
Once the pressure has gone, open lid and transfer the contents into a saucepan set on medium heat.
You can add salt, spice etc at this level if not enough.
The gravy should reduce to about 1/4 cup and at that time add the washed spinach. Mix well till it wilts a bit.
When it becomes a semi dry form, maximum 5 minutes, take it off the flame and set aside to cool.
You can store it in zip lock bags and place in the freezer for up to a week or so and use bit by bit in bakes, wraps, sandwiches etc.
Notes: If you want to add more Indian masalas, you can do so. I usually prefer to keep it just chilli powder and pepper powder since i use it for bakes.
