Method

  1. In a non-stick frying pan, dry-fry onion and mince over a high heat for 2 mins, breaking up the mince as you go. Stir in the curry powder and lentils, pour in stock, then fiercely simmer for 10 mins.
  2. While the mince is cooking, dice the tomatoes and roughly chop the coriander, then mix together in a small bowl. Put the naans briefly in a toaster to warm through, then pop one on each plate. Spoon a quarter of the mince over each naan, then top with a spoonful of the fresh tomato and coriander salad.

Sorry but this one doesn't work for me. It tasted powdery. I think this is probably due to the fact that the curry powder is added at same time as stock - my understanding is that usually curry powder is 'cooked out' by stirring around a bit before any liquid is added. I did manage to rescue it a bit by adding red onion and lime juice to the tomato and coriander. Won't be making again.

Always nice to have a different way to cook with mince. It wasn't too spicy, so even the children (4 and 8) enjoyed it. I was worried about the small quantity of meat, but the lentils bulked it out nicely. A quick midweek meal.
