Baking Sheet with Baking Paper


Prep the Veg
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel).
  • Trim the carrot (unpeeled), quarter lengthways then chop into 1cm chunks.
  • Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed then thinly slice widthways.
  • Drain and rinse lentils in a sieve.
Roast the Potatoes
  • Pop the potatoes onto a lined baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil and season with curry powder, salt and pepper.
  • Toss to coat then spread out in a single layer.
  • Roast the potatoes on the top shelf of your oven until golden and crispy, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through cooking.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Cook the Mince
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat (without oil).
  • Once hot, add the beef mince and season with salt and pepper.
  • Fry until browned, 4-5 mins. Break it up with a spoon as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Start the Curry
  • Add the chopped carrot to the pan and fry until softened, 3-4 mins.
  • Add korma paste and chilli (use less if you don't like spice).
  • Stir together and cook until fragrant, 1 min.
Simmer the Sauce
  • Add passata, lentils, stock powder, 200ml water and ½ tsp sugar (double both for 4p) to the pan.
  • Stir together and bring to the boil.
  • Lower the heat and simmer until the curry has reduced, 10-12 mins.
  • Once the curry is cooked, season to taste with salt and pepper.

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

Finish and Serve
  • Divide the beef curry between bowls. 
  • Scatter the curried roast potatoes on top.
  • Spoon over a dollop of cooling creme fraiche.
  • Garnish to taste with any remaining chilli.
