pie? as in cottage pie but with pastry on top? personally I prefer it with potato on top - otherwise you have to do potato as well!

Used as filling for gyoza - a sort of Japanese dumpling. You can buy the skins from Chinese supermarkets. Mixed with spring onions, soy sauce. Vinegar/ginger sliver dip.

You can deep fry the gyoza or boil them.

thanks all, I am thinking enchiladas (cos someone mentioned tacos), I have wraps. I think I will invent as I go, usually works. I was just looking at the contents of the freezer (very few contents!!) and was at loss for inspiration.

chopster - oooh yeah, that's the sort of thing my mum used to make. I'm going to put in an order!

what about MI's kheema?

Buy really good quality mince. Start with a piece of cinnamon and a few cloves in hot oil. Put in a large onion, sliced fine, and let it colour. Then add turmeric, chilli, coriander and cummin powders. Let this cook a minute or so before adding ginger-garlic paste. Give that a minute or so, until the masala is fried and the oil separates. Add the mince and toss well to brown in the spices. Turn down the fire, add tomatos and a good handful of chopped coriander and mint. (mint is really nice with mince). Put into an oven (mark 4) and leave until well cooked and tender - abt an hr.

Anyone ever made meatloaf? Not sure I could eat a slice or chunk of meat like that but not sure why? Am carnivore! Maybe I'll make a small one!
