Beef Kofta Curry

I have been wanting to make this Jamie Oliver curry for a while, although I really wasn't sure if Randal would like this at all, mainly because of the lentils mixed in with the beef.  I figured if there was enough curry sauce though, he might not even notice. I really enjoyed making this curry and it did taste great (although Randal quickly found the lentils!) but I did have some trouble with the kofta falling apart in the pan, so mine ended up more like a mince curry.

1 cup puy lentils, cooked
1 tsp garam masala
1 lb ground beef
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tomatoes
1 thumb-sized piece of ginger
2 spring onions
1/2 a red chilli
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp honey
2 tsp rogan josh curry paste
Half a can of light coconut milk
Put the lentils into a bowl with salt, pepper, the garam masala and beef, mix together.

Divide the mixture into 12 and shape each one into a short sausage shape. Put them into the frying pan with 1 tbsp of oil, turning when golden.

In a blender, add the tomatoes, ginger, spring onions, the chilli, turmeric, honey, curry paste and coconut milk, then puree until thoroughly combined. Pour into the kofta pan, bring to the boil, then simmer and season to taste.
