In a small skillet, add the coriander, cumin, peppercorns and mustard seeds. Turn on the heat and bring the skillet to a medium heat. Toast the spices until fragrant and slightly browned. Remove from the heat and let cool. Place the spices in a coffee grinder and pulse until the spices become a fine powder. In a small bowl, add the toasted, ground spices and the garam masala, cayenne, salt, turmeric and bay leaves. Mix to combine. Set aside.

In a large skillet with a lid, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until cooked through, 8 minutes. Add the onions and cook 5 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic, cook 6 minutes. Add the spice mix, cook 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and raisins, cook 5 minutes. Add the rice and stir to coat. Add 4 cups of water, bring to a boil and then lower the heat to a simmer. Simmer until rice is cooked, 25 to 30 minutes.

To serve, sprinkle with chopped cilantro and mint.
