Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1  Lamb Meatball Rogan Josh

Boil half a kettle, then peel and finely slice the brown onion[s]

Add the lamb mince to a bowl with a generous pinch of both salt and pepper and mix until combined (clean hands is the best way!)

Divide the mince into 6 [12] and shape into meatballs

2  Lamb Meatball Rogan Josh

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat

Once hot, add the meatballs and cook for 2 min, turning occasionally, then transfer them to a plate and set aside

Return the pan to a medium-low heat, add the sliced onion with a generous pinch of salt and cook for 10 min or until they're softened and caramelised

3  Lamb Meatball Rogan Josh

Meanwhile, add the basmati rice and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

4  Lamb Meatball Rogan Josh

While the rice is cooking, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Peel the ginger (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate)

Cut the tomatoes into wedges

Dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] and tomato paste in 250ml [500ml] boiled water

5  Lamb Meatball Rogan Josh

Once the onions are caramelised, add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil to the pan

Increase the heat to high and add the garam masala and cayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and cook for 1 min

Add 2/3 of the chopped garlic and all of the chopped ginger and cook for a further 1 min or until fragrant

6  Lamb Meatball Rogan Josh

Return the meatballs to the pan and add the stock, tomatoes, mango chutney and a very generous pinch of pepper, then reduce the heat to medium

Cook, covered, for 8-10 min or until the sauce resembles a curry-like consistency and the meatballs are cooked through – this is your lamb meatball rogan josh

7  Lamb Meatball Rogan Josh

While the meatballs are cooking, cut the green beans in half

Heat a small pot (with a matching lid) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the yellow mustard seeds and cook for 1 min or until they begin to pop

Add the green beans, a pinch of salt and pepper and a splash of water and cook covered for 3-4 min, then add the remaining garlic for a final 1 min – these are your mustard seed green beans
