Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 500g pack lean beef mince
  • 3 tbsp mild or medium curry paste
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 150ml fresh beef stock, hot
  • Couple handfuls frozen peas
  • 225g long-grain or basmati rice

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Increase the heat, add the mince and cook for 3-4 minutes, until browned all over. Stir in the curry paste, cook for 1 minute, then stir in the tomatoes and stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a fast simmer. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring, until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Add the peas and cook for 5 minutes until the peas are tender. Season to taste.
  2. Meanwhile, rinse the rice in a sieve under cold running water, to separate the grains. Put into a saucepan, cover with plenty of salted water and put over a high heat. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 12-15 minutes until tender. Drain well through a sieve, then fluff up the grains with a fork. Serve with the curried mince.
