Method

Bake: 20-25 min
 
Boil the potatoes in lightly salted water until tender and drain. Heat the butter in a pan and stir-fry the chilli for 30 seconds over medium heat. Mash the potatoes with the butter and chilli, milk and coriander leaves and season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat a large pan and add the oil. Fry the onion and garlic until tender. Add the chilli, coriander and masala and stir-fry for another minute. Add the mince and fry until the meat is lightly browned. Stir in the carrot and flour and heat for another minute. Add the stock and tomato purée. Cover and simmer slowly for about 35 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Preheat the oven to 190ºC and spray four small ovenproof serving dishes or one medium-sized oven dish with non-stick spray. Stir the chopped coriander leaves into the mince and spoon the mixture into the ovenproof dishes. Top with the mashed potatoes and bake for 20-25 minutes until the topping is lightly browned. (Brown the dish under the oven grill for a few minutes if desired.) Serve hot. Makes 4 individual or 1 medium-sized shepherd's pie.
