Organic Mince Meat (how much you desire, we used three hand fulls)

1 onion

2 tablespoons of ghee

2 table spoons of pure tomato puree

Sea salt, turmeric, pepper

2 potatoes

½ cup green lentils (add more if you like)

2.5 cups of rice (add more if you like)

Meatball Method

Add the ghee to a pan. Add mincemeat, onion, sea salt, pepper and turmeric to a bowl and mix the mixture till it becomes sticky, then roll into meatballs. Heat the ghee slightly, add sliced onions, once slightly brown add the meat. Sautee on medium-low heat. Once the edges are brown add the tomato puree, add a little water to create a sauce. . Add a pinch of salt (any seasoning you like) and place the lid on the pan with the meatballs and cook for 30 minutes to an hour.

Rice Method

Soak 2.5 cups of rice (you choose how much you require for your family) for 1 hour

Soak ½ cup of green lentils (adas) for 1 hour

Cut 2 potatoes into small chunks

Drain the rice and wash 3 times, wash the lentils and add to the rice. Add the chopped potatoes. Boil enough water in the kettle so it will cover the rice and lentils. Add the boiled water over the potatoes, rice and lentils (water should be 2.5cm above the rice). Add sea salt. Boil till the rice is just over half cooked. Drain, then add a little water and 2 table spoons of ghee at the bottom of the pan, heap the rice/lentil/potato in the pan. Place the mixture on medium heat for 3 minutes with the lid on (allowing steam to generate), then on low heat for an hr. Voila!
