Beef Curry Mince

I use this curry mince mainly as a pie filling. It can also be used as a curry puff filling or just served simply with rice or bread.

Hi Sinner - hubby does not take beef so if I used chicken mince instead, do I use the rest of the ingredients as per normal?

Family First - yes but adjust the salt to suit your own taste.
