  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat a large deep frying pan over high heat. Add the mince and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up the lumps, for 5 mins or until the mince changes colour. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a heatproof bowl, leaving any pan juices in the pan.

  2. Step 2

    Reduce heat to medium-high and add the onion, carrot and potato. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until onion softens. Add the garlic, cumin, cinnamon, coriander stems and roots, tomato and mince. Season. Bring to a simmer. Stir in the olive and raisins. Partially cover and cook for 20 mins or until the vegetables are tender and the sauce thickens slightly.

  3. Step 3

    Chop half the coriander leaves. Cook rice following packet directions. Season. Stir in the chopped coriander.

  4. Step 4

    Divide the rice mixture and mince mixture among serving bowls. Sprinkle with remaining coriander leaves.
