Spicy meat samosa filling

From Cookipedia

This is basically the filling for meat samosas, however it could easily be served as a main course with pilau rice and naan breads

Because it is meant to be a samosa filling it should be quite dry or you will have a shock when you deep fry them! If you are serving this as a main course it does not have to be as dry.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
