Instructions

Cook the Rice
1
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the rice.
  • When boiling, add the rice and cook for 10-12 mins.
  • Drain in a sieve and pop back in the pot.
  • Cover with a lid and leave to the side until ready to serve.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Fry the Beef
2
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat (no oil).
  • Once the pan is hot, add the beef mince and fry until browned, 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw meat and its packaging. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks.
  • Meanwhile, halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Once the mince has browned, add the onion (with a drizzle of oil if necessary). Fry until it's starting to soften, 3-4 mins.
Season the Mince
3
  • Finely chop the chilli.
  • Drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.
  • Once the onion has softened, add the North Indian style spice and chilli (use less if you don't like spice) to the pan.
  • Cook, stirring, for 1 min.
Simmer the Sauce
4
  • Add 100ml water (double for 4p), passata, stock and lentils to the pan.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Stir together. Simmer until thickened, 4-5 mins. IMPORTANT: Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

TIP: Add a splash of water if you feel it needs loosening.

Wilt the Spinach
5
  • Add the spinach a handful at a time.
  • Cook until wilted and piping hot, 2-3 mins.
  • Taste and add more salt and pepper if desired.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Divide the rice between your bowls.
  • Top with the curry and a dollop of yoghurt.
