- 400g Lean Diced Lamb [All visible fat removed]
- 1 Large Onion
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- 1 tbsp Mild Curry Powder
- 200g Basmati Rice
- 400ml Lamb Stock
- 200g Chopped Tomatoes
- 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
- Pinch Salt
- Peel and finely chop the onion. Add to a pan with 50ml of the lamb stock. Cover and cook for 2 – 3 minutes.
- Meanwhile wash the rice in warm water to remove all of the starch. Place to one side.
- Add the lamb and brown for 1 – 2 minutes.
- Add another 50ml lamb stock to the pan. Crush the garlic and add to the pan with the curry powder, salt and cayenne pepper.
- Add the rice to the pan and coat with all of the mixture. Add the remaining stock and chopped tomatoes. Stir well, cover and bring to a gentle simmer.
- The rice should take around 15 – 20 minutes to absorb all of the liquid and be ready to serve. Stir often and keep an eye on it. If the rice absorbs quickly, add extra water if needed.
