Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add the basmati rice, water, salt and currants and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek.
While the rice is cooking, combine the beef strips, Mumbai spice blend, 1/2 the Greek yoghurt and a drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and set aside.
Finely chop the cucumber and tomato. Roughly chop the mint leaves. In a medium bowl, add the cucumber, tomato, mint and white wine vinegar. Season to taste.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the flaked almonds and toast, tossing, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.
Return the frying pan to a high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, cook the Mumbai beef, in batches, tossing, until the beef is browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes.
Stir the baby spinach leaves through the garlic rice and divide between bowls. Top with the Mumbai beef, salsa and the remaining Greek yoghurt. Sprinkle over the toasted almonds. TIP: For the Calorie Smart option, serve with 1/2 the Greek yoghurt and remove the flaked almonds.
