  • 2 slices white bread
  • 500ml milk
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 x 500g Asda Lean Beef Steak Mince
  • 3 level tbsp curry powder
  • 2 eating apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 4 tbsp sultanas
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 4 tbsp Asda Extra Special Mango Chutney
  • 4 free-range eggs
  • 4 bay leaves
  • Salad, to serve
  • Pre-heat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3. Break the bread into small pieces and soak in 200ml milk.

  • Cook the onion and mince in a non-stick frying pan until the meat changes colour. Stir in the curry powder and cook for 1 minute (this is best done in two batches).

  • Add the apple, sultanas, tomato purée, chutney and soaked bread and milk, and stir until well mixed. Season, then spoon into two ovenproof dishes, about 1 litre each. Cover with foil and cook in the oven for 45 minutes.

  • Lightly beat the eggs with the rest of the milk and pour over the two dishes. Put the bay leaves on top and cook uncovered for another 30 minutes.

  • Serve one with salad. Let the other cool before covering with cling film and freezing.
