Indian Spiced Shepherds Pie

Shepherds pie with a twist...

A great dish for all the family, packed full of veg and a great way to introduce little ones to spice.

I prefer this to a classic shepherds pie, the topping is so much lighter. Kids prefer the classic version apparently but who’s cooking kids?! They still polished it off.
