  • Meanwhile, heat the oil and butter in a large heavy saucepan, add the chopped onion and minced meat and fry until golden brown and breaking down any lumps in the mince.
  • Add the broken vermicelli and fry for another 5-10 minutes till slightly brown.
  • Drain and wash the rice till water runs clean.
  • Add the rice into the pan and give it a good stir (but be careful as to not break the rice in the process).
  • Add in all the spices and mix it in well.
  • Add in the boiling-hot stock and give it all one good stir.
  • Cover the pan and simmer over low heat for about 15-20 minutes (till all the water's been absorbed and rice cooked through).
  • Take the pan off the heat, take the lid off and cover the pan with a clean towel and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Gently fluff up the rice with a fork and serve with pine seeds sprinkled on top.
