Pot-Roast: Heat a few glugs of olive oil in a large casserole dish over a medium-high heat. Add the onions and a good pinch of salt and cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the tomatoes, mustard seeds, ginger and remaining Tikka Masala spice mix, and cook for 3 minutes more. Stir through the coconut milk and water (quantities above) and bring to a simmer.
