This staple Indian dish is traditionally made with lamb mince. It is medium in spice and finished with green peas. Seitan, when minced, takes on the consistency of lean mince.

  • Blitz the garlic and ginger with a little vegetable oil to make a paste. Fry the onions in a pan until they start to brown, then add the ginger and garlic puree and the green chilli. Lightly fry until fragrant. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan, add a little more oil and fry off the blitzed seitan until browned like mince. Add the onion mix and dry spices, fry until toasted and then deglaze the pan with water.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and season. Simmer until thick, then add the frozen peas, chopped coriander and soya milk until the desired consistency and colour is achieved. Finish with lemon juice to taste.
  • Serve over cooked brown rice with garnish.

Plant based dishes use fewer natural resources in their creation than those made with meat, fish or animal derivatives. Here's the comparative impact of this dish if it was made using Lamb.
