Ground Meat Curry

Ground Meat Curry

This recipe originated with a wonderful cookbook I brought when Puckstopper was starting to more complex meals about 11 years ago. The book was called One-Recipe Three-meal Family cookbook by Sara Lewis. This curry was my favorite recipe from the book. I just passed the book on to La and knew I needed to extract this recipe from it!


I onion, chopped

1-pound ground meat of choice.

1 clove garlic, crushed and minced

2 teaspoons mild curry paste

2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

½ cup plain breadcrumbs

1 Tablespoon tomato paste

¼ cup raisins (or more)

1 Tablespoon mango chutney, minced

1 banana, sliced

2 eggs (or 3 eggs whites? I haven’t tried it but I am pretty sure it will work)

4 teaspoons turmeric

½ cup skim milk

4 small bay leaves

7. Place dish on baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes.

9. Remove baking dish from oven and lay the bay leaves on top of the meat.

10. Pour the egg mixture over the top and return baking dish to the oven.
