Finely chop the garlic. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with a dash of olive oil over a mediumhigh heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the water and 1/2 the salt, stir, and bring to the boil. Add the basmati rice, then reduce the heat to low and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then remove from the heat and keep covered until the rice is tender and the water has absorbed, 10 minutes.

TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, finely chop the cucumber. In a small bowl, combine the Greek yoghurt and 1/2 the cucumber. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Set aside.


Roughly chop the tomato and baby spinach leaves. Pick and finely chop the mint leaves (reserve some for garnish!). In a medium bowl, combine the tomato, baby spinach, mint and remaining cucumber. Add the white wine vinegar and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and stir to combine.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. When the oil is hot, cook the beef strips, in batches, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.


Return the frying pan to medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the Mild North Indian spice blend and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the coconut milk and remaining salt and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until thickened slightly, 3 minutes. Return the beef (plus any resting juices) to the pan and stir to combine. Season to taste.


Divide the garlic rice and Indian beef between bowls. Serve with the cucumber raita and tomatomint salsa. Garnish with the reserved mint.
