1 whole cinnamon sticks
1/2 tsp of whole cumin
31/2 cups of water
salt to taste
11/2 cups of ground beef (cooked)
2 cups of coleslaw
1 tsp ginger and garlic
2 large potatoes diced

Add the onions and saute them till they are translucent, in the mean time go ahead and peel the potatoes and cube them into bite sized pieces and add them to the pot making sure all the ingredients have incorporated well, next season it with salt, when the potatoes are half way cooked add the coleslaw and stir well than go ahead and add the rice (drained), increase the heat and stir the rice and add the cooked ground beef and the water, once the water starts boiling lower your temperature to the lowest setting and cover, let the rice cook for about 18 min or until the water has disappeared and the rice is cooked, now with a fork just pick on the rice so it does not clump.
