Vindaloo Lasagne!

Filed under: Diet, What were they thinking? — solutionsthroughit @ 23:18

The story behind vindaloo lasagne is fairly simple, and basically started out as a joke.  I posted that I was having to use arborio rice instead of basmati.  A friend made a rash comment “The worlds first Rojan Josh rissotto? What’s next? Vindaloo lasagne?”.

I found this to be incredibly insightful, and thus the vindaloo lasagne idea was born. I came up with the following recipe.  If you have a go at this recipe, please leave a comment below!

  • 400g sirloin steak (Revised recipe, 500g)
  • 300g fine low fat mince
  • 1 jar Patak’s vindaloo paste
  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • garlic (fresh or pre-minced)
  • 1 tin tomato’s, (lowest sugar)
  • 1 pkt San Remo Egg Lasagne Sheet pasta (fresh soft pasta)
  • 1 bag Perfect Italiano 4 Cheese Blend
  • Chili infused Olive Oil
  • Hot / Death sauce to taste – I used about two teaspoons of Turbo Supercharge
  • 3x Gravox Cheese sauce
  • 2 handfuls baby spinach, fresh (Revised recipe – 1 big handful)
  • 1 bunch coriander (Revised recipe – 2 bunches)

Preparation time, approximately 2-3 hours.  Serves 4-8, depending on sides and appetites.

Dice sirloin, into pieces slightly larger than 1cm cubes. 

Heat a thick based pan (with lid).  Coat with Chilli infused oil.  Sear sirloin, adding approx. 1-2 tsp of garlic. 

Add mince, allow to brown.

Add entire jar of Patak’s vindaloo paste, stirring well.  Add 1/3rd jar water. Add 3/4 cup vinegar. Bring to boil.

Reduce heat to simmer, simmer for 1-2 hours, until consistency is firm, yet still moist.

When the meat is ready, assembly of the lasagne can begin.

Prepare your cheese sauce, I combined all three sauces into the one saucepan.

Chop, mix and rapidly blanch (10 – 15 seconds) the baby spinach and coriander.

If required, heat the pasta sheets to separate, and put your first layer into your lasagne dish.  Build your meat, cheese or coriander/spinach layers as desired, finishing with a vey generous layer of 4 cheese blend.  Bake in the oven at 180oC for about 45 minutes.

After eating, ensure you post here, and let me know what you think, or how to make this better!
