Nanna’s Mince (Kay See Mingh)

This was my mother's recipe, which I have updated. I think every household in Australia has some version of this recipe.


In a saucepan big enough to cook the whole meal, heat a bit of vegetable oil, fry a diced onion and some garlic and finely chopped ginger.

Add about 500 gm mince (1 lb) and brown thoroughly.

Add 1 tablespoon of curry powder and cook until aromatic.


Small tin of diced pineapple

Packet of chicken noodle soup

Tablespoon of rice

About 1/4 cabbage, finely shredded

Other vegies - french beans, sliced capsicum, julienne carrots

Add water so the mixture is runny. The rice thickens it.

Cook for about an hour.

Serve with soy sauce and sweet chillie sauce.
