Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pasta (boiled and drained)
  • 85 g (3 oz) Mutton Mince
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mixed vegetables (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/4 cup tomato puree
  • 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp thyme (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp oregano (or to taste)

Instructions

  1. Boil the mutton mince with ginger and garlic paste until tender, then cook until the water dries up completely.  Set aside.  (I usually do this in bulk with 1 kg of meat, separate it into individual portions and freeze what I'm not using right away.  This makes it faster to prepare the next time.)

  2. In a nonstick frying pan, heat 1 tbsp olive oil.

  3. Add the onions and saute until transparent.

  4. Add the 1/2 cup mixed vegetables.  I use frozen to save time, but you can use fresh if you like.  Lightly fry until cooked through.

  5. Add the cooked minced meat and fry for about a minute.

  6. Add the tomato puree and cook until the raw smell of the tomato goes away, usually about 2 minutes.

  7. Season with salt, black pepper, thyme and oregano.

  8. Toss together with whole wheat pasta.
