Ingredients Jump to method

Fruit & Veg

3 large tomatoes

1 bunch fresh cilantro


Meat

1.5 lb lean ground beef


Dried Goods

10 oz basmati rice


Cans & Jars

1 x 13.5 fl oz can coconut milk


Condiments

5 cardamom pods

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp turmeric

1 tbsp rogan josh curry paste


Pantry

Salt and pepper

Olive oil

Method

Pour the rice into a pan and cover with 600ml boiling water. Season with salt, stir, and place the lid onto the pan. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Next, remove the pan from the heat, ensuring the lid is kept on for a further 10 minutes, as the rice will continue to cook in its own steam.


Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan. Mix garam masala, ground beef, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mold into 6 small sausage shapes using your hands to form the koftas. Fry for 6 minutes, turning regularly.


Next, put the tomatoes, three-quarters of the cilantro (including stems), turmeric, curry paste, and coconut milk into a processor. Once blitzed, add to the kofta pan and simmer for 10 minutes.


Portion the rice and curry into four bowls. Scatter over the remaining cilantro leaves and serve.
