Spaghetti bolognese (Ball-or-neighs? with some tajweed)...the “g” is silent right? Riiight?
I never know if I’m pronouncing it right but an-kneeeee-way, it’s yummy and I was lissing! 🍝
Ghee or garlic butter
1 kg steak mince
1 tin of peeled diced tomatoes
1 tin tomato purée
(or skip the tins and grate 5-6 medium tomatoes)
1 sachet tomato paste
Some fresh chopped basil (optional)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup fried onions
2 tsp crushed garlic
Salt, pepper, vinegar, green chilli, red chilli powder, steak and chops spice.
Chopped veggies (carrots, mixed veg, baby marrow)
Parmesan (for serving if you have, I had none)
Heat ghee or garlic butter. Add onions, veggies and garlic, braise. I added a few curry leaves. Can add some oregano too. Let veggies soften then add mince to cook. Also add 1/4 cup water (got this tip from @sajseeds_recipes and it’s brilliant!) to help break up the mince easily so it’s not lumpy and you’re not trying to press down on it til your wrist breaks 🤣
Anyway once braised, add your tomatoes. ALL them to-may-toes.
Add your spices, with a squirt of vinegar. Add other spices if you want to indian it up.
Add in chopped basil and a pinch of oregano.
Cool til done.
Add 1 cup of your boiled pasta water if you want it lekker saucy.
Boil your spaghetti while the bolognese is being cooked.
Serve bolognese on your spaghetti with a mountain of Parmesan grated over 😍
Serve and enjoy!
