Ingredients

  • 2 slices white bread
  • 2 onion chopped
  • 25g butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1kg packet lean minced beef
  • 2 tbsp Madras curry paste
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 3 cloves
  • 2 tbsp peach or mango chutney
  • 3 tbsp sultana
  • 6 bay leaf
  • For the topping
  • 300ml full-cream milk
  • 2 large egg

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Pour cold water over the bread and set aside to soak.
  • Meanwhile, fry the onions in the butter, stirring regularly for 10 mins until they are soft and starting to colour.
  • Add the garlic and beef and stir well, crushing the mince into fine grains until it changes colour. Stir in the curry paste, herbs, spices, chutney, sultanas and 2 of the bay leaves with 1 tsp salt and plenty of ground black pepper.
  • Cover and simmer for 10 mins. Squeeze the water from the bread, then beat into the meat mixture until well blended. Tip into an oval ovenproof dish (23 x 33cm and about 5-6cm deep). Press the mixture down well and smooth the top. You can make this and chill 1 day ahead.
  • For the topping, beat the milk and eggs with seasoning, then pour over the meat. Top with the remaining bay leaves and bake for 35-40 mins until the topping is set and starting to turn golden.
  • *Serve with yellow rice.
