Biryani, chicken - by Venus

Post by Venus on Sun 9 Nov - 15:12




Ingredients
300g basmati rice
25g butter
1 large onion , finely sliced
1 bay leaf
3 cardamom pods
small cinnamon stick
1 tsp tumeric
4 skinless chicken breasts , cut into large chunks
4 tbsp curry paste (we used Patak's balti paste))
85g raisins
850ml chicken stock
chopped coriander and toasted flaked almonds to serve


Method
1. Soak the rice in warm water, then wash in cold until the water runs clear. Heat butter in a saucepan and cook the onions with the bay leaf and other whole spices for 10 mins. Sprinkle in the turmeric, then add chicken and curry paste and cook until aromatic.
2. Stir the rice into the pan with the raisins, then pour over the stock. Place a tight-fitting lid on the pan and bring to a hard boil, then lower the heat to a minimum and cook the rice for another 5 mins. Turn off the heat and leave for 10 mins. Stir well, mixing through half the coriander. To serve, scatter over the rest of the coriander and the almonds.

TIP: With the left over rice...
The next day, enjoy a Coronation chicken rice salad for lunch. Mix the cold rice with mayonnaise and a squeeze of lemon juice and serve with Baby Gem leaves and sliced cucumber.

Favourite Quote : Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive & well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out & screaming, "WOO HOOOO! What a ride!"
