Now add the boiled beef mix until combined.

Add the two cups of basmati rice. Mix well then add the 4 cups of water.

Adjust seasoning with some salt and then bring to a boil until almost all the water has evaporated.

In a separate cup add the saffron to 2 tablespoons of water. Mix until the safron is soft and liquid turns yellow.

Drizzle the saffron with its water over the rice. Now cover it with a tight lid and let the rice steam for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the rice is fluffy.

Serve the rice with your favorite pickles and a side of Kachumbari.
