Title: "Hamburger" / Ground Meat Balti
Yield: 4 Servings
Categories: Indian, Balti, Meats


2 lb Ground meat (hamburger, or
-other mince)
3 tb Vegetable oil
4 Garlic cloves, chopped
8 oz Onion, chopped
1 tb Tomato paste
4 tb Balti masala paste
1 ts Garam masala (optional)
1 tb Fresh coriander leaves,

Stir-fry the minced meat in the wok for 8-12 minutes. Strain off and save
the liquid. Set the meat aside.

Add the oil to the wok and stir-fry the garlic very quickly: then add
onion, reduce heat and stir-fry for 10 minutes, until translucent. Add
Balti paste and garam masala (if you're using it). Raise heat again and
stir-fry for another few minutes. Then add the mince to the mixture in the
wok and continue stir-frying a few minutes more.

Lower heat and simmer uncovered for 35-40 minutes. Every now and then, add
some of the reserved liquid to help keep the mixture from sticking. When
cooked, add coriander leaves to taste. Serve.
