3 vine-ripened tomatoes, cut into wedges
100g bag Waitrose baby spinach
150g basmati rice, steamed, to serve


1. Cut the lamb leg steaks into 3cm pieces, discarding any visible fat, and season with freshly ground black pepper.

3. Add the lamb and brown for 2-3 minutes. Add the base sauce from the sauce kit and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.

5. Stir in the tomatoes and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until softened. Stir in the spinach and leave to wilt for 2 minutes. Add a splash of water to loosen the sauce slightly.

6. Spoon the Rogan josh into 4 bowls and serve with the rice.
