Preparation

  1. Make the pilau masala: In a medium bowl, combine the cumin, paprika, cardamom, black pepper, and cloves. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the oil and red onion and sauté for 10-15 minutes, until dark brown.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger, serrano chile, pilau masala, beef stock cubes, cinnamon stick, and cilantro. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.
  4. Add the beef and cook until browned, about 8 minutes.
  5. Add the tomatoes and cook for 4-5 minutes, until the tomatoes have released their liquid.
  6. Add the potatoes and the water. Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Add the rice, stir, and cover. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 20 minutes, until the rice is cooked and the liquid is absorbed.
