A rice preparation made with mutton mince which is absolutely delicious and tasty and yet so simple to make.Any day they prefer chicken recipes over the mutton recipes. And I have to scratch my head to find out new ways to get it into their diet.
A spiced meal in one using beef mince for a filling and flavoursome dinner.
This recipe works well with lamb mince too but replace the fresh coriander or flat-leaf parsley with fresh mint. If any pilau is left over, store in the fridge for up to two days. Shape into small patties, and pan fry with a little oil and serve with ketchup or a relish of your choice.
