Curry Mince Loaf

Curry Mince Loaf

We all love a good mince curry on bread, different forms of it can be found all around South Africa and is enjoyed by people of all different walks of life. This delicious recipe is a unique twist on the idea that is sure to impress while keeping a very South African dish alive and well this heritage month! It’s time to make a curry mince loaf!

What you’ll need:
500 g mince
1 medium onion
1 tsp garlic cloves
15 ml olive oil
1/2 cup water
1 potato
1 tbsp brown vinegar
1 to 2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup chutney
1 ciabatta — large loaf
1 cup cheddar cheese

What to do:
Begin by dicing the onion & potato, grating the cheddar cheese and crushing the garlic cloves. Add the oil to a frying pan and bring to heat. Sauté the garlic & onion and add the curry & turmeric and fry for about two minutes. Once ready add the mince to the pan and cook until brown, making sure to keep the mince moist with water and mixing it regularly and keeping the pan lid on in between mixes.

After roughly five minutes add the potatoes, chutney, brown vinegar and season with the salt. Continue to keep everything moist and cook for another ten or so minutes until the potatoes are cooked and soft.

Once ready leave the mince to simmer for about fifteen minutes. While the mince simmers cut open the ciabatta loaf and hollow out some space for the mice. Spread butter on the hollowed-out area and fill with the mince once it is done. Finally cover the mince with the cheese and use braai “rooster” to grill over the fire or pop it in the oven until the cheese is melted and the bread it lightly toasted.

Once ready, it’s time to dig into this tasty variation on a South African classic!
