This delicious Curried Cottage Pie has been expertly designed by our chefs as a lighter option to help with a balanced lifestyle.

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.
North Indian Style Spice Mix
Beef Stock Paste
Tenderstem Broccoli ®
Water for the Sauce
Sugar for the Sauce
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Bring a large saucepan of water with 1/2 tsp salt to the boil for the potatoes. Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peel first if you prefer). Halve, peel and chop the red onion into small pieces. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). When boiling, add the potatoes to the water and cook until you can easily slip a knife through, 15-20 mins.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. When the oil 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, then drain and discard any excess fat. Season with salt and pepper. Add the onion to the mince and cook until softened, 4-5 mins.
Add the garlic, tomato puree and North Indian style spice mix to the mince. Fry until fragrant, 30 secs, continuously stirring. Stir in the beef stock paste, sugar and water for the sauce (see ingredients for both amounts), then bring to the boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer until thickened, 4-5 mins, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, add the peas then remove from the heat. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Once the potatoes are cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan, off the heat. Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk (if you have any) and mash until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
When the filling is ready, transfer it to an appropriately sized ovenproof dish. Spread over the mash in an even layer. Bake the pie onto the top shelf of your oven until golden and bubbling, 15-20 mins. After 5 mins of baking time, halve any thick broccoli stems, then pop the Tenderstem® onto a baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. Roast on the middle shelf of your oven until tender and crispy, 10-15 mins.
When everything is ready, divide the curried cottage pie between your plates and serve with the roasted Tenderstem® broccoli alongside. Enjoy!
