  1. Step 1

    Combine cumin, coriander, paprika, ginger, cinnamon, turmeric and oil in a large shallow dish. Add lamb and rub the spice mixture all over lamb to coat.
  2. Step 2

    Heat a large frying pan over high heat. Add the lamb and cook, turning occasionally, for 5 mins or until brown all over. Transfer to a slow cooker with the onion, carrot and stock. Cover and cook for 6 hours on high (or 8 hours on low) or until the lamb is tender.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, to make the rice salad, heat rice following packet directions. Cook the asparagus and baby broccoli in a saucepan of boiling water for 2 mins or until bright green and just tender. Refresh under cold water. Drain well. Combine the rice, asparagus mixture, rocket, lemon juice and oil in a large bowl. Season.
  4. Step 4
