    spray oil
    1 large onion, sliced
    3 garlic cloves, crushed (I use the lazy garlic in a jar, 3 tsp)
    1 teaspoon ground turmeric
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1 1/4 teaspoons ground coriander
    1 1/4 teaspoons garam masala
    500g turkey mince
    19 fluid ounces beef stock
    12 ounces basmati rice
    6 ounces spinach, roughly shredded


1 Heat the pan and spray well with spray oil, add the onion and fry for 3- 4 minutes until softened.

2 Add the garlic and spices and fry for another 3 minutes.

3 Add the minced beef and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until all the meat has browned.

4 Add the stock and bring to the boil.

5 Cover and simmer for 40 minutes until all the meat is tender.

6 MEANWHILE cook the rice in a pan of boiling water for 10- 12 minutes until just tender.

7 Add the spinach to the rice and cook for just 30 seconds.

8 Drain well and stir rice and spinach mixture into the minced beef mixture.

9 Transfer the mixture to a warmed serving dish and serve with naan breads (not included in nutritional values).

Sultanas and almonds make a good last minute addition.
