Ingredients
 

  • 500 g lean lamb mince
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 tbsp flour, heaped
  • 350 ml strong lamb or chicken stock
  • 2 tomato ketchup
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 aubergine
  • 6 tbsp any oil
  • 1 kg potatoes, peeled and made into mash
  • 200 ml warm milk
  • 100 g melted butter
  • 1 pinch curry powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 4 tbsp parsley, roughly chopped

Instructions
 

  • Pre heat the oven to 200C, Gas 6.
  • Heat a saucepan and add the oil.
  • Add the onion and thyme and cook for 5 minutes to colour slightly, then add the mince and colour slightly.
  • Add the flour and let the bottom catch slightly. Do not burn; this adds to the flavour, I promise. Then add the ketchup and Worcester sauce, then mix well.
  • Finally, pour in the stock and bring to a very low simmer. Cook for 10-12 minutes.
  • Slice the aubergine into very thin rings and cook on both sides in the olive oil for a couple of minutes to colour slightly and soften. Then place on a piece of kitchen towel to drain well.
  • Place the warm mash into a bowl and add the paprika, butter, chopped parsley and curry powder and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place half the mince into a baking dish (30cm x 20cm approx), lay over the cooked aubergines, add the rest of the mince and pipe or spread over the mash.
  • Place in the preheated oven for 30 minutes to brown and crispy.
  • Once cooked, this will freeze well, cool well and wrap in cling film and freeze.
  • To cook, remove from the freezer and defrost well, best overnight in a fridge.
  • Then place in a preheated oven 220C, Gas 7 for 40 minutes or until very hot and glazed.
