This is one of those simple dishes that you will keep coming back to again and again.
The whole family will love the sweetness and spice of the lamb and comforting brown rice. I just leave the chilli out when serving it to my toddler and he absolutely loves it.
If you like it spicy just add some fresh chilli or chilli sauce to the individual serves for adults.
The kaffir lime leaves are definitely a nice option but only if you have some to hand. They add a sweet Indian flavour (they’re often found in Indian and Thai cuisine). If you don’t have them you could use mint or parsley if you have some.
This dish is delicious the next day reheated for lunch and also freezes really well. Why not cook double and freeze a family sized portion as a backup dinner? Just extend the cooking time to 5 hrs on low.


  • 500g lean lamb mince
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup of uncooked brown rice
  • 1 large onion, peeled and diced
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp minced chilli (optional, or add at end in bowls)
  • ½ tsp each of ground coriander, cumin, cinnamon, and turmeric
  • 5 tbsp sultanas
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 8 kaffir lime leaves, to serve (optional), very thinly sliced
  • 1 cup natural or Greek yoghurt, to serve


  • Heat the tsp of oil in a large frying pan over med/high heat.
  • Brown your mince and place in the slow cooker.
  • Add all of the other ingredients except for the yoghurt and lime leaves.
  • Give a good stir, put the lid on, and cook on low for 3 hours.
  • The rice will still have a little bit of bite so cook it longer if you prefer.
  • Serve into bowls and dollop on the yoghurt and lime leaves if using.
