Curried Mince and Peas

Curried Mince and Peas

Cheap, easy and with only a handful of ingredients this is the perfect midweek meal to satisfy the whole family. If you like it a bit hotter try making it with Madras curry paste rather than the Tikka paste specified in the recipe.

  1. What a great busy night meal for this time of year

  2. I know ..only 2 and a half weeks till Christmas. I had better get cracking. At least I picked up my tree yesterday. My mom always made mince when were kids but I doubt she had ever heard of curry at the has been a long time since I was kid...wink:D

  3. Great dish for when time isn't on your hands or you want something quick and easy!


  4. I read that as curried mince pies! which sounded odd to say the least!

    Great recipe though, I'll remember this for when I'm working.

  5. I like the color the peas add!

  6. I love a recipe that is hearty, easy to make and tastes great.

  7. I have some balti paste knocking around so will try this with it, good work night dinner :)

  8. Simple and tasty! Just the way I like it.

  9. Curry is always a winner, and I love that this is so easy. As you say, perfect for a mid-week dinner.

  10. I only have tandoori paste and green thai curry paste - would either of these work?!
