This is a terrific recipe for a great meal. The main ingredients for this recipe are fresh herbs. Any recipe can turn out to be the best when you cook with fresh herbs. The best way to pick your herbs is to look for the freshness. Tear a piece, pinch and hold up to your nose, It should give out the strong aroma when you smell it. It's simple, it should look fresh, feel fresh and smell fresh. This recipe can be used as minced meat stuffing for the Samosas and stuffing for  Empanadas as well.
