1

Finely chop the garlic. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Cook 1/2 the garlic until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati rice, water (for the rice) and salt (for the rice), stir, then bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!

2

While the rice is cooking, combine the beef mince, fine breadcrumbs, egg, salt (for the beef) and the remaining garlic in a large bowl. Season with pepper. Using damp hands, take a heaped spoonful of beef mixture and shape into a small meatball. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the remaining mixture. You should get 5-6 meatballs per person.

3

In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the meatballs, turning, until browned all over and cooked through, 8-10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

4

While the meatballs are cooking, roughly chop the tomato. Finely chop the brown onion (see ingredients). Roughly chop the Asian greens.

5

Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the onion until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the Mumbai spice blend and tomato paste (see ingredients) and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the Asian greens, tomato, coconut milk, water (for the sauce) and beef-style stock powder, then return the meatballs to the pan. Cook until the sauce has thickened slightly, 1-2 minutes. Season to taste.

6

Roughly chop the coriander. Divide the garlic rice between bowls, then spoon over the beef meatballs and curry sauce. Top with the Greek-style yoghurt and garnish with the coriander.
