Halve, peel and thinly slice the red onion. Halve the red pepper, remove the core and seeds and thinly slice. Peel and finely grate the ginger, roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all). Fill and boil your kettle.


Heat a splash of oil in a frying pan over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the beef mince and fry until golden brown, 4-5 mins. Break it up with a spoon as it cooks.


Meanwhile, pour the boiling water for the rice (see ingredients for amount) into a saucepan and bring back to the boil. Stir in the rice and 1/4 tsp of salt. Lower the heat to medium and pop a lid on the pan. Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).


Meanwhile, when the mince is browned, lower the heat then add the red onion and red pepper. Cook until softened, 6-8 mins, stirring occasionally. Next add the ginger, Thai spice (be careful it's spicy, add less if you don't like spice!) and the chicken stock powder. Add the water (see ingredients for amount) and stir in the mange tout. Simmer until the liquid has reduced by half and the mangetout are tender, 4-5 mins.


While everything cooks, zest and halve the lime. When the beef is ready stir through the ketjap manis, a squeeze of lime juice and half the coriander. Remove from the heat, taste and add salt and pepper if necessary. Fluff up the rice with a fork and stir through the lime zest. Get ready to serve.


Share the rice between your bowls and serve the beef on top. Finish with a sprinkle of the remaining coriander. Chop the remaining lime into wedges and serve alongside for anyone who likes things extra zesty.
