Method

  1. In a large non-stick frying pan, cook the lamb, onion and carrots, stirring often, until the lamb is browned and veg is starting to soften, about 8 mins. Add the garam masala and some seasoning and cook for a further 2 mins until fragrant. Pour in the stock, bring to the boil, tip in the peas and cook for a further 2 mins until the peas are cooked and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  2. Meanwhile, cook potatoes in a large pan of salted water until just tender, about 8 mins. Drain well, return to the pan and gently stir in turmeric and coriander – try not to break up the potatoes too much.
  3. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Transfer the mince to a baking dish and top with the turmeric potatoes. Squeeze over the lemon juice, then bake for 30-35 mins until potatoes are golden. Serve immediately with extra lemon wedges on the side.

Great flavours but found the filling dry so I mixed up a raita with natural yoghurt, the remaining coriander, some crushed garlic and a hint of paprika which gave it the moisture it needed and complimented the Indian spices perfectly. Great mid week meal

Really enjoyed this meal, even my 3 year old son devoured it all. I put 300ml of stock in after the comments about it being dry and I found this was just right. The potatoes on top were delicious and healthy too! Not sure this serving is for 6 either, more like 4 or maybe we're just greedy!!

Delicious. Family loved it and the potatoes on top make a really nice change from mash.

Used lean beef mince instead of lamb and although it was really tasty, I found the filling a bit dry. Next time I'll add a tin of chopped tomatoes I think.

The topping was good but we found the filling was too dry.

Really good, made a change from the normal pie. I did use beef instead of lamb, love the potato topping. Yum.

This just delicious and so quick and easy to do. Have made this twice and cut down on the amount of peas the second time after feedback from the family. A shepherds pie without the hassle of mashed potato - bliss.
