– Gradually add water, chutney, mushrooms and corn, then cook for 15 – 20 minutes. Add peas and parsley and allow to heat through.

Topping: Meanwhile, boil the potatoes. As soon as they’re cooked, drain and mash them in the pot while still steaming hot.

– Beat in the seasoning, butter or margarine, cheese, mustard, baking powder and enough milk to give a creamy texture.
– Place the meat and sauce in a greased ovenproof dish. Cover with the potato topping. Spread with a knife to create peaks. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
