You can add in some dried dates or apricots if you've got them lying around. Frozen peas work as well instead of beans. To make it go a bit further, chuck in more tomatoes and a can of chick peas. This works just as well with beef instead of lamb. You can grind up dried chilli flakes if you don't have chilli powder.
If you're making this ahead of time, stop before adding the beans or peas, and leave it to cool before refrigerating or freezing.
One of my favorites so far. Thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, including two teenage boys who usually just inhale their dinner. Full marks from us! - 21 Sep 2015
