Quick, easy, and delicious mid-week dinner made with a South African favorite, Chutney.


  • 1 kg lean beef mince
  • 500 ml water
  • 2 slices white bread, broken into crumbs
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 10 ml salt
  • 5 ml black pepper
  • 4 tbsp chutney
  • 3 tbsp Maizena (corn flour)
  • 125 ml cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 125 ml vegetable oil
  • 125 ml milk
  • 250 ml cake wheat flour
  • 10 ml baking powder
  • 2 ml salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Spray a large oven-proof baking dish with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium pot over medium-high heat, mix together the mince, water, bread crumbs, vinegar, salt, black pepper, and chutney. Heat until a light simmer. Mix together the corn flour and milk until smooth. Add to the mince mixture and stir until well combined and thickens up. Cook for 5-10 minutes and remove from heat.
  3. Transfer the mince mixture to the baking dish.
  4. For the top filling, whisk together the egg, oil, milk, flour, baking powder, and 2ml salt until well combined. Spread the filling evenly out over the warm mince mixture.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes until the crust on top has turned golden brown. Enjoy warm with a fresh salad or roasted vegetables.
