One Pot Indian Mince Recipe

Are you looking for a tasty, cheap and delicious meal to serve up on those chilly winter nights? Here is one of my one pot winter favourites. Serve it with a side of greens. It tastes even better the next day spooned inside of an iceberg lettuce leaf for a delicious crunchy treat.
