About this recipe:
I learned this from my Bulgarian mother in law though it's probably Turkish in origin. It's a tasty twist on meat and potatoes.
100ml (5 tablespoons) olive oil
500g beef mince
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 2cm cubes
½, 400g or similar weight tomato puree
1 tablespoon chopped Italian basil leaves
1 egg, lightly beaten
150ml (2/3rd cup) natural yoghurt
- Preheat oven to 160 C.
- Heat oil in a frypan over medium heat. Cook the mince until evenly browned. Add the paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir in potatoes and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Stir in the tomatoes and basil. Add enough water to just barely cover. Reduce heat, and simmer uncovered 15 minutes.
- Pour mince mixture into 20x30cm baking dish. In a small bowl, mix together the egg and yoghurt. Pour, and spread evenly over meat mixture.
- Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until top is golden brown.
