This is a great recipe to prepare a day before when you are going on a road trip. Remember to pack your jaffle maker, extra fire wood and your tongs on top so you have easy access to it, to stop next to the road at a picnic area and braai your jaffles.
WHAT YOU NEED: (makes 6 jaffles)
- Olive oil
- 1 onion, sliced
- 500 g lean beef mince
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- Salt and pepper
- 1 tot ground coriander
- 1 tot ground cumin
- 2 tots medium curry powder
- 1 tot turmeric
- 1 tin chopped tomatoes
- 1 tot tomato paste
- 1 bread (you will need 12 slices)
- butter to spread on the bread slices
WHAT TO DO:
- Use your potjie, place it on the fire, add the olive oil and onions to the pot and fry for a few minutes. Add the beef mince and garlic, season with salt and pepper and fry until cooked and golden brown.
- Add the coriander, cumin, curry powder, and turmeric and fry for a few minutes to release all the flavours.
- Add the chopped tomatoes and tomato paste and let the potjie simmer for about 30 minutes until most of the liquid has cooked off and you are happy with the consistency.
- Remove the potjie from the heat and let it cool down before you pack it into your travelling dish. Keep it in the fridge until you hit the road.
- Light your fire and while you wait for the coals to be ready, spread the slices of bread with butter on the outside and fill with the curry mince mixture. Cover with another slice of buttered bread, place the mince sandwich into you jaffle maker and place the jaffle maker directly onto the coals for optimum heat.
- Toast the bread on both sides for about 8 – 10 minutes, checking in between your progress to make sure the bread does not burn, but gets a nice toasted colour and serve as is.
You can add grated cheddar cheese to the jaffles for extra points.
