Have you got your pilau rice spot on yet? You'll need it to get to keema rice as it is just refried pilau (fried in turmeric and onions), with the crumbled bits of a sheek kebab recipe. This makes a generous portion for one:

1 cup of Basmati rice
1/2 tsp fennel seed
1/2 tsp cardamom seed ( or split cardamamon pods, about 5 for me cos I love 'em)
1 cinnamon stick
Green, red and yellow food colouring

Put rice in pan, with spicesand cover with 2 inches of water
Bring water to boil and then simmer, keep an eye on the rice making sure it doesn't boil dry. After five minutes test the rice to see if it is cooked. It should be soft but firm to the bite.
When cooked drain into colander
Sprinkle a few drops of each colouring onto the rice in different places
Leave the rice to drain and cool for an hour or so.
Tip into microwave container and separate rice by shaking it
When ready microwave through to heat it thoroughly.

Half an onion, sliced thinly
Mushrooms, sliced thinly
0.5 tspn turmeric
Pilau rice (as outlined above)

Heat a tablespoons worth of oil in a wok or frying pan
Add onions and mushrooms and cook through till onions are translucent.
Add turmeric and cook for a minute, check oil to ensure there is enough, the mushroom will absord it.
Add cold pilau rice and stir fry until cooked through

Keema rice

As above but add 1 crumbled sheek kebab instead of mushrooms.
