Indian Rice Pilaf with Spiced Beef is another one of my favourite dishes.

It is simply an explosion of flavours in your mouth and even my children love it (which is really saying something!).

You can use any mince you like, be it beef, pork, chicken or even turkey if you are cutting calories.

I know it looks like a LOT of ingredients, but do yourself a favour and try it so you’ll know that it isn’t totally complicated! This is super easy and won’t even take you an hour to finish this!

This is a dish perfect for those people who love curry and spicy food!

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • The meat in the Indian Rice Pilaf with Spiced Beef recipe can be replaced with beef, pork, chicken or turkey so it is perfect for everyone!
  • Cumin seeds, caraway seeds and ground tumeric may not be a staple in your household - but you can pick up small packets of them from the spice section of your supermarket or an Indian supermarket.
