  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 300g beef mince



    The classic choice of meat for a British Sunday roast. Beef is full of flavour, as…

  • 2 tbsp medium or mild curry powder
  • 100g dried red lentils
  • 700ml hot beef stock
  • 3 tomatoes



    A member of the nightshade family (along with aubergines, peppers and chillies), tomatoes are in…

  • handful coriander leaves
  • 4 mini naan bread


  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.

My children loved this, I thought it was good but not special. As others suggested, I added a couple of carrots plus some garlic and a little sugar at the end. Served with homemade flat bread, the tomato salad, peanuts, sliced banana and mango chutney.

Used 500g beef mince and 2 x red onions but otherwise kept the same ingredients. Delicious!

We didn't find this very appetising so I won't rush to do this again. I assume that the large quantity of liquid is necessary for the dried lentils, and if you used tinned then less stock would be needed. Am I correct?

700 ml of stock? Surely that is a typo? I am about to find out...

Great dish, very easy to prepare. Like others, I added a chopped carrot and that made it look better. Definitely serve with the tomato salad. I added a splash of red wine vinegar, a dash of salt and pepper and a little sugar to the tomatoes, plus the coriander. Our 2yr old grandson was eating with us and kept asking for more!

Thought this was delicious and a nice change from a regular curry. I served it as in the recipe but with mango chutney and a homemade Raita to go with with it. Will certainly make this again!!
