1 kg minced beef or lamb
1 fairly thick sliced crust-less bread It can be brown or white
375 ml milk
25 ml oil
2 sliced onions
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 1/2 tbsp curry powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp fruit chutney Mrs Balls Original chutney is THE best but if you can’t find it, don’t stress
1 tbsp smooth apricot jam
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp turmeric
1 1/2 tbsp brown vinegar
6 tbsp sultanas (don’t replace with raisins – they are too sweet; sultanas are much better for this recipe)
First off, soak your bread in milk.
Then add the bread to pan together with mince and sultanas.
Now add 1 beaten egg and mix everything together well. Lastly, spoon into a greased baking dish, approx 28 x 16 cm baking dish to the top.
