Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Heat the oil in a large, shallow ovenproof pan, tip in the lamb, then fry on a high heat for 5 mins until browned all over. Take out of the pan and set aside. Fry the onions in what’s left of the oil for 5 mins, until starting to soften and turn golden at the edges. Tip in the garlic and curry powder and fry for 1 min more until toasty and aromatic.

  • STEP 2

    Stir the lamb back in to the pan along with the chilli, coconut milk and stock, then bring to the boil. Cover the pan and place in the oven for 1 hr, until the lamb is completely tender. Alternatively, you can simmer the pan on a low heat for 1 hr on the hob.

  • STEP 3

    Season to taste, stir in the rice, re-cover pan, then return to the oven or hob for 30 mins until all the liquid has been absorbed. Take off the heat, leave to stand, covered, for 10 mins, then fluff the rice with a fork. Sprinkle with the mango, coriander and almonds, if using, then serve straight from the pan.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKE IT IN 40 MINUTES

Use cubed chicken breast instead of lamb and follow as above. Tip the rice straight into the pan once you’ve added the liquid, cover and cook on a medium heat for 30 mins.

MAKE IT DIFFERENT

Try using cubed stewing steak or whole chicken thighs and cook slowly as above.
