Expensive Gingergirl,

I’m guaranteed you are fed up of individuals wanting for 1-pot recipes but I could seriously do with some enable. I’m a solitary, doing the job mum of 3 expanding boys! It is frequently after six before I get in every night and my sons have appetites that seldom want to wait around even a single hour for evening meal! I like one particular-pot recipes as I can seize a shower and do a rapid tidy up even though they are cooking.



Hello Mary,

It seems like you’ve bought your hands entire! This very simple Biryani is a wonderful, gentle dish but it is also substantial adequate to maintain your youthful adult men joyful! The quantity down below will provide 4 generously. I hope you men take pleasure in it!

Biryani designed uncomplicated!

300g basmati rice

25g butter

1 huge onion, finely sliced

1 bay leaf

3 cardamom pods

Tiny cinnamon stick

½ teaspoon turmeric

4 skinless rooster breasts cut into large chunks

4 tbsp curry paste (I use balti paste)

100g raisins

850ml rooster stock

Chopped coriander (to serve)

Toasted flaked almonds (to provide)

Soak the basmati for twenty minutes, then clean beneath cold operating drinking water till the drinking water operates apparent – I do this religiously when cooking rice and to day I’ve often managed to make perfect rice!

Heat the butter in a massive, large dependent saucepan and cook dinner the onions with the bay leaf, cardamom and cinnamon for 10 minutes. Sprinkle in the turmeric, then add the rooster and the curry paste. Prepare dinner until you can seriously odor the spices.

Stir the rice into the pan with the raisins, and then pour over the stock. Put a restricted-fitting lid on the pan (I generally put a thoroughly clean tea towel involving the pot and the lid just to be absolutely sure) and convey to the boil, then decrease the warmth to a least and cook the rice for another five minutes. Change off the heat and depart for ten minutes. Stir perfectly, mixing via fifty percent the coriander. To serve, scatter above the rest of the coriander and the toasted almonds.

And finally…

This dish is genuinely charming when served with poppadoms and raita. Raita is a yogurt-based mostly condiment served with Indian food items – it functions great as the yoghurt is cooling and as a result can make spicier dishes a bit easier to swallow!

While store acquired raita is ideal it is seriously uncomplicated to make your personal. Simply mix 50 % a finely chopped cucumber with 50 % a finely chopped crimson onion with 200g of natural yogurt (lower extra fat is fantastic for people counting calories), then stir in a tablespoon of chopped mint, a very little salt and a squeeze of lemon juice to style.
