Made this for weekend tea as not having tack away and I must say it was better than the really thing I use beef not lamb and was please with the end result will be having this again.

I made a version of this using 5% beef mince & slightly different seasonings- 1tsp cumin, oregano, sea salt & mixed herbs, 1/2tsp onion granules, garlic granules, smoked paprika, ground coriander, cayenne pepper & pinch black pepper- 4 servings 161 cal for the diner, cooked it in my ninja so no oil
