This recipe was given to me when I was in my early 20's. My father liked good old British cooking and didn't like the taste or smell or anything "foreign". My mother was more adventurous and would let me try the odd dish out as long as we got rid of the smell before my dad got home. She really started to look forward to this as it was quick and filling.
Frozen peas, peppers, prawns etc., can all be added to this dish according to taste.
