Ingredients

  • 500

    gm lean lamb, either minced or cut into small cubes

  • 1

    tsp ground cumin

  • 1

    tsp ground allspice

  • 1

    Tbs chilli paste

  • sea salt & freshly ground pepper

  • olive oil

  • 1

    medium onion, finely chopped

  • 2

    large garlic cloves, crushed

  • 300

    gm basmati rice (or any other long grain rice)

  • 3-3½

    cups chicken stock

  • 2

    Tbs chopped fresh coriander

  • 1-2

    Tbs pine nuts, toasted

  • 1-2

    Tbs raisins

  • plain yoghurt

Directions

1. Toss the lamb with the cumin, allspice, chilli paste, a little salt and quite a bit of ground pepper until well combined. 2. Heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan and cook the lamb until sealed, continually tossing. Remove and set aside. 3. Add a little fresh oil to the pan, if needed, and gently sauté the onion and garlic until tender, stirring now and again. 4. Add the rice and mix it in well, before adding 3 cups stock. Push down any rice from the sides with a spoon, return the lamb and bring to the boil. Cover, turn down the heat and very gently simmer for about 30-40 mins until the lamb and rice are tender, adding more stock if needed. 5. When ready, stir through the coriander, pine nuts and raisins. Sprinkle with yoghurt and serve.
