With beef mince, curry paste and slaw mix, this stir-fry is jam packed full of flavour, colour and texture. Better yet, it only takes three simple steps and 25 minutes to have this delicious and nutritious dish on the table. If you don’t have roti, use up any leftover thin flatbread lurking in the pantry.
