Instructions

Get Prepped
1
  • Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a large pot of salted water for the potatoes.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
  • When water is boiling, add the potatoes. Cook until fork tender, 15-20 mins.
  • Halve, peel and slice the onion. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Cut the broccoli into florets (like small trees). Halve any large florets.

TIP: To save time you can boil the water in your kettle.

Time to Fry
2
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat (no oil).
  • When the pan is hot, add the beef mince and cook until browned, 3-4 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add the onion to the mince (with a drizzle of oil if needed) and cook until softened, 4-5 mins.
Make the Filling
3
  • Add the garlic, tomato paste and North Indian spice mix to the mince.
  • Fry until fragrant, 30 secs, continuously stirring.
  • Stir in the beef stock powder and 150ml water (double for 4p). Bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce has thickened, 4-5 mins, stirring occasionally.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar and remove from the heat. IMPORTANT: Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Mash the Potato
4
  • Once cooked, drain the potatoes in a colander and return to the pot off the heat.
  • Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk or water. Mash until smooth.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
Bake Your Pie
5
  • When the filling is ready, transfer to an appropriately-sized ovenproof dish.
  • Carefully layer the mash over the filling, using the back of a spoon to smooth it out. Bake on the top shelf of your oven until golden and bubbling, 15-20 mins.
  • Halfway through cooking, pop the broccoli onto a lined baking tray. Toss together with a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Spread out in a single layer.
  • Roast until tender and crispy, 10-12 mins.
Serve and Enjoy
6
  • When everything is ready, divide the curried cottage pie between your plates.
  • Serve the roasted broccoli alongside.
