Indian rice pilaf with spicy mince

Indian rice pilaf

This is a great recipe, but the real star of this dish is the rice.  It’s one of those versatile recipes that you can build so many simple meals around.  You can’t really tell from the photo, but the flavour comes from a mixture of cumin seeds, caraway seeds, turmeric, garlic & onion.  A great combination.

I’ve actually tagged this as a ‘kids’ recipe because it’s one of my boys’ favourite dinners – just the rice on it’s own with a few peas thrown in.  I don’t blame them.  It’s pretty great.  In fact this would be up there as one of our top 5 family meals.  It’s simple, it’s flavoursome and I know that as long as I have thawed mince on hand, I can have a great meal on the table in 20 mins.

If spicy mince isn’t your thing, try serving the rice with sliced tandoori chicken breast or a simple pumpkin and cauliflower curry.  Yum!
