Mix lamb mince with cardamom, chilli and seasoning until mushy. Roll between your palms into small balls (aim to get approx 10 balls from 200g of mince). Heat a splash of oil – I use garlic infused – into a large frying pan and brown the meatballs with 1 tsp cumin seeds for 5 or 6 mins. Add the garlic, green pepper, chopped shallots, tomatoes and half a jar of Ultra Fire.

Cover and reduce heat. In a saucepan, toast the remaining cumin seeds over medium heat. Add rice and cover with water. Bring to boil, lower heat, cover and cook for 10 mins. Set aside, still covered for another 10 mins. Remove the lid from meatballs. Add remaining Ultra Fire and coriander. Cook for 5 mins, or till sauce is thick enough. Drain and Fluff rice with a fork. Serve into 2 bowls and add meatballs and sauce.
