Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place a large pot over medium-low heat. Add the leftover potatoes and hot water and stir with a wooden spoon until the potatoes begin to soften and get hot, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the milk, butter, yogurt, 1 teaspoon ajwain and a pinch of salt and stir well until the mixture is smooth. Set aside.

Place a large skillet over medium heat and add the oil. When it is hot, add the garlic, ginger and onions, and cook until the onions are soft and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the celery and stir, and then add the garam masala, Italian mixed herbs, the remaining 1 teaspoon ajwain seeds and a pinch of salt, and cook for about 30 seconds. Stir in the ground beef, stir and let it cook through, about 5 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes and 1/2 cup water, and then stir in the cooked lentils and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour into a 9 by 13-inch baking dish and sprinkle with the mozzarella. Spread the mashed potatoes evenly over the top and sprinkle with the paprika. Bake until it is bubbling and hot, about 30 minutes.

    Tried this recipe today. It was awesome! I just changed the meet using chicken instead of beef and added celery, capsicum and green peace. Instead of crushed tomatoes I used chicken stock. Since I didn't managed to get Ajwain i replaced with cumin seed. It tasted really good. It tasted really good. Thanks once again!

    This is absolutely the most delicious shepherds pie I have ever made! The spices are subtle yet very aromatic, and the pie is juicy, luscious and even better the second night. I did not have ajwain, but it didn't matter - just added a little more salt and pepper. As well, used herb and garlic mozzarella (by Philadelphia) and it added that little extra zest to the layers. Wonderful!!!!

    Well I love to cook so when I saw this I was excited to try it. I honestly tried to follow the recipe to a T but didn't have some of the things it suggested but most of it. My family loved it as we love to eat "Pastelon de papa" (Puertorican version of Shepperds pie) and this was nice because it was different flavors and my family was very pleased. Thanks :)
