Preparation time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
Totaltime: 2 hours 15 minutes


  • 3 slices of bread
    1 cup + 1/2 cup milk, divided
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 large onions, roughly chopped
    4 teaspoons medium curry powder
    1 teaspoon dried herbs (oregano, basil, marjoram)
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
    2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    1 1/2 pound ground beef or lamb
    1/2 cup fruit chutney
    3 tablespoons sultana raisins
    Zest and juice of one medium lemon, divided
    4 teaspoons tomato paste
    Salt and pepper
    2 large eggs
    4 bay leaves


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.
    Soak the bread in 1 cup of milk.
    Heat the olive oil in a wide skillet set over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the onions, and cook until soft.
    Add the curry powder, mixed herbs, ground cumin, turmeric, and garlic, and stirring constantly, allow to cook for a minute or two until the garlic is soft.
    Add the ground meat, and cook, stirring frequently to break up any big chunks, until browned.
    Once the meat is browned, remove the skillet from the heat, and stir in the chutney, raisins, all the lemon zest, half the lemon juice, tomato paste, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well, give it a taste, and add more lemon juice, salt, and pepper as desired.
    Squeeze the milk from the bread, reserving the milk for later, and tearing the bread into small pieces. Mix the bread into the beef mixture, and spread evenly into an oven-proof dish.
    Strain the milk that has come from the bread, and add the remaining 1/2 cup of milk. Beat in the eggs, and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste. Pour this over the meat, and scatter the bay leaves on top.
    Bake, uncovered, at 350°F for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
