Erachi Kothi Varuthathu/Minced Meat Fry

Another one from my Mom's kitchen. A preparation which can be served as a side dish as well as a sandwich/puffs/rolls stuffing. Mom makes it with minced beef. I used minced turkey here.

You will need...

Minced meat - 500gm
Onion - 1 big sliced
Tomattoes - 1-2 chopped
Coriander powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Mint leaves - few chopped
Potatoes - 1
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp

To cook meat...
Ginger - 1 inch piece crushed
Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Green chillies - 5 chopped
Salt - to taste


Peel potatoes and cut into four lengthwise.  Cut into thin slices. Sprinkle with salt, deep fry and keep aside.
In a non stick pan add meat and the second set of ingredients and cook stirring continously until all the water is gone. Transfer it into another vessel. Pour oil in the cooking pan, saute onions and curry leaves. Reduce heat and add coriander powder, chilli powder, turmeric powder and garam masala powder. Add tomattoes. When oil leaves to the sides add the cooked meat and stir fry until golden.  Add vinegar and salt to taste. Garnish with mint leaves and fried potatoes.

While cooking meat keep stirring continously or else the meat might stick together into lumps.
