You can just keep adding ingredients to the pan, frying and cooking and stirring until it’s a happy mess…or do what I did, and treat it like meatloaf. It’s a little unconventional (a.k.a. not traditional), but I tried it both ways and found the flavors got into the meat better with this method (and it makes the almonds a bit softer).
It’s really easy: In a large bowl, mix beef, curry, lemon juice, zest, raisins, almonds, chutney, salt, pepper, and the soaked bread (squeeze it dry first and be sure to reserve the milk). You can add in the cooled onion mixture, too. Combine well.
