Perfect blend of spices giving this English classic an exciting twist. A little longer recipe to cook but worth the effort.

Looks delicious, glad it was worth the effort!

Has become a favourite in our house! I've made it many ways....with ground lamb, with chicken thighs, with chicken breast, totally vegan....and it's been a hit each and every time !

Looks like a brilliant Balti to us and it's fantastic that it's so versatile!

Best thing I've ever eaten. Also added some of the haldi blend to the mash and topped it off with some mango chutney, worked a treat!

Wow - high praise indeed! We're so happy to hear how much you loved this dish, it certainly looks delicious! Great idea to add some Haldi and mango chutney to the mash too!
