An opulent dish all the way from India, biryani is now a staple on curry house menus throughout Great Britain. The rice is infused with whole spices, potatoes and eggs are marinated in spiced yogurt, onions are fried until crispy and sweet and the whole lot assembled, sealed tightly then baked in the oven so the rice finishes cooking in the fragrant steam and when opened at the table guests can savour the beautiful aromas. It’s not the simplest of dishes to prepare but very much worth the effort! We’re serving it here with a mixed veg curry, simple salad, tomato chutney and raita.
