800g lean lamb leg steaks, visible fat removed, cut into bite-size chunks

2 onions, finely chopped

1 tbsp grated fresh garlic

5cm piece fresh root ginger, grated

1-2 green or red chillies, deseeded and finely sliced

2 tbsp medium curry powder

400g can chopped tomatoes

1 Preheat your oven to 160°C/fan 140°C/gas 3. Spray a large, lidded ovenproof pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Cook the lamb in batches until lightly browned all over. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

2 Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper, then return to a medium heat. Add the onions with a splash of water and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes, or until beginning to soften. Stir in the garlic, ginger, chillies and curry powder and cook for 1 minute.

3 Add the lamb to the pan with the canned tomatoes, stock, lentils and carrots. Bring to the boil, then cover and cook in the oven for 1½ hours. Stir through the aubergine and chickpeas, then return to the oven for a further 20 minutes, or until everything is tender. Season and serve scattered with the tomatoes and coriander sprigs.
