Method

  1. Chop the onion, garlic, ginger and chillies together in a food processor. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the mixture until it becomes very fragrant. Add the mince and fry until it begins to brown, stirring to break up any lumps.
  2. Add the spices and fry for 1 min. Add the tomatoes and bring to a simmer, cook for 1 min, then stir in the yogurt, some salt and a good grind of black pepper. Add a splash of water if you need to, then cook the mixture for 30 mins. Add the frozen peas and cook for 5 mins, then stir in the coriander. Serve with Indian breads or poppadums, chutney and some more yogurt.

Bland and boring, but easy took and healthy if you are concerned about oil, fat, etc. I would not cook it again as its not worth it. Avoid!

Yes, just needed a bit more heat, as Colette suggests, not quite spicy enough for me but lo and behold, what did I find only a jar of Harissa paste - stir in a teaspoon or two, he presto!! Lorraine's Prawn n chorizo recipe next.. :-))

Great recipe - and popular too. Next time I do it, I'll make some improvements: the mince I get is rather fatty so I would skim off some of the fat after cooking the mince; I think the others in my family would prefer me to cut down on the chillis: add a little more liquid.

I'm sorry to say but we didn't like it. Just heat & no real flavours.

I use the same recepie with roughly chopped capsicum instead of peas. Very delicious, typical Indian/Pakistani cuisine!

I also added whole tin of tomatoes plus a little chilli powder. I made in advance and added a little water when reheating. Was really good with plain boiled race and warm naan bread.

Really lovely recipe. I tend to use a whole can of tomatoes but only because I'd end up throwing out the forgotten half can in the fridge a week later!

Hi, has anybody made this with beef mince?

Lovely. Added the whole can of tomatoes too though and let reduce down for a bit longer.
Served with Naan bread and plain yoghurt.

Tried this recipe last night, it is absolutely gorgeous! Fairly easy to make and brought in leftovers to work and colleagues loved it too. I used 200 grams of natural yogurt instead of the 2 spoons and it makes it gives it a very smooth texture. Definitely one of my favorites.

Love this curry. I make it with 3 chillies rather than 2 though to give it an extra kick.

Have made with quorn mince and works just as well!

Sometimes add some aubergines/courgettes/mushrooms to bulk it up and to use up what's in the fridge!

This recipe is part of our staple diet. I cook it at least 10 -15 times a year. I freeze portions for my 3-year-old son too. Perfect! And so easy!

Really nice - I made it with beef mince as it was cheaper. Really tasty and will definitely be making this again.

Tasted great but I used the whole tin of tomatoes and more yoghurt. Servied with chappatis and froze the leftovers.
