1 teaspoon of tomato puree
100g cherry tomatoes, chopped

- Preheat your oven to 180°C/356°F/Gas Mark 4.

- Cook the basmati rice, following the instructions on the package.
- In a frying pan, on high heat, add vegetable oil and start by frying the garlic, onions and carrots.
- After about 2 minutes or once the onions are translucent you can add in the beef mince.
- Now season with salt, black pepper and cinnamon.
- Keep stirring until the meat has browned - this should take about 10 minutes at most.
