500 g ground beef
1 roll or 1 large slice of toast
4 cloves of garlic
50 g raisins
2 tbsp mango chutney
50 g almond flakes
125 ml milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
A pinch of nutmeg
3 tsp curry powder

Soak the roll or large slice of toast in water and then wring it out well.
Mix the bread, finely chopped onions and garlic, raisins, mango chutney, almond flakes, and one egg with the ground beef until well blended.
Season with salt, pepper, 2 tsp curry powder and the lemon juice.
Stuff the seasoned ground beef mixture into a greased casserole dish, smooth out the top and bake in a preheated oven at 220 degrees Celsius for approx. 20 minutes. In the meantime, stir together the milk and remaining two eggs, season with salt, nutmeg and curry.
