About the cooks: Asian Luncheon Club from the Queens Walk Community Centre. The lunch club is on every Monday and Thursday between 12:30 and 2pm. It's for all local people, where you get a chance to eat some Asian food, socialise with other people and bring different communities together. Here's their recipe.

For meat mix:
300g Lamb Meat
1 tbs x Garlic Paste
½ tbs x Ginger Paste
4 tbs x Peeled Tomatoes
1 tbs x Tomato Puree
1 tbs x Cooking Oil (Sunflower)
1 tbs x Cumin Powder
1 pinch x Turmeric Powder
1 tps x Chilli Powder
2, 1 inch pieces of Cinnamon
Clove 4 piece
Cardamom 2 pieces
Salt - as per your taste
Fresh mint leaves

For the rest:
2 x onions
2 x medium potatoes
300g Rice
1 x tbs Butter
4 tbs x Yoghurt
Mix all the spices into the meat and cook in a pressure cooker on a high heat for 15 - 20 minutes. Fry two chopped onions in some cooking oil until they are brown. Cut two medium sized potatoes into four pieces and fry them with the onions. Add four spoons of yoghurt to the fried onions and potatoes and mix that with the meat once the meat is cooked. Stand rice in clean water for 10 minutes. After that, boil the rice until it is half cooked.
The final preparation:
Use a medium sized pot. Put one layer of rice in the bottom then add one layer of the cooked meat/potatoes mix. Repeat this layering twice. Finally put in some butter and close the lid, cook on a medium hob for 10 minutes and serve.
