A classic Indian curry made with rich, aromatic lamb and a myriad of spices, you can’t beat a Rogan Josh. Unless, of course, you bake it into a pie. In that case some serious culinary magic happens. In this recipe, we’ve topped the curry with potato and a sprinkling of turmeric and roasted them until they’re golden and crispy. The result is a mildly aromatic flavour making them the perfect accompaniment to the curry. Delicious!

Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
Rogan Josh Curry Paste
Red Split Lentils
Chicken Stock Powder
Greek Style Natural Yoghurt(ContainsMilk)
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Remove the ends from the carrot (no need to peel), halve lengthways then chop into 1cm strips. Chop into 1cm chunks. Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed then slice thinly.
Pop the potato on a baking tray and drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle over the turmeric and toss to coat. Roast the potatoes on the top shelf of you oven until golden and crispy, 25-30 mins, turn halfway through cooking. Once cooked, remove from your oven and set aside. Tip: Use two baking trays if necessary, you want the potatoes nicely spread out.
Meanwhile, heat a frying pan on medium high heat (no oil). Once hot, add the lamb and season with salt and pepper. Fry until browned, 4-5 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. Add the carrot to the lamb, fry until the carrot softens slightly, 3-4 mins. Stir in the rogan josh paste and half the green chilli (add less if you don't like heat). Cook for 1 minute, then add the lentils, passata, water (see ingredient list for amount) and chicken stock powder.
Stir together and bring the mixture gently to the boil, simmer until the lentils are tender, 20-25 mins. Add a splash of water if the mixture is dry. Once the mixture is cooked. Season to taste with salt and pepper if you feel it needs it. Then transfer to an ovenproof dish.
Lay the roasted potatoes on top of the lamb mixture, then bake in your oven until the mixture is bubbling, 4-5 mins.
Remove from your oven and drizzle over some of the yoghurt and sprinkle over the remaining green chilli. Spoon into bowls, drizzle over some more yoghurt (and more chilli for anyone that likes things extra spicy), enjoy!
