Tailored to Taste
This full-flavoured biryani is so delicious it belies how quick and easy it is to cook. Whether you use cubes of chicken or whole joints (as would be traditional) the whole process is easy to do and delivers on results. For the most authentic version, use the skinned chicken joints and make your own onions by frying thin slices in hot oil until golden and crisp on the edges or buy them ready made (albeit in smaller broken pieces) and sprinkle over a handful.
Ingredients
  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Delhi Biryani (rice included)
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 200g chicken thigh fillet, cubed or whole joints for a longer cook but tastier dish
  • A pinch of saffron
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • A few small cubes of butter
  • Crispy onions (optional)
Method
  1. Heat 2 tsp of oil in a small-lidded pan taking care not to overheat the oil. Add the spices from the spices pouch and sizzle for 20 seconds.
  2. Add in the chicken and sear until golden on the sides, turning the pieces over for an even light golden colour.
  3. Add the contents of the sauce pouch and simmer for 6-7 minutes or until cooked through. Add a little water as necessary, the sauce should be lightly creamy.
  4. Gently massage the rice in the pouch to break up any lumps. Layer the rice evenly on top of the ‘curry’.
  5. Dot over a few small cubes of butter (if using) and sprinkle a handful of crispy fried onions over the top.
  6. Cover and steam over the lowest heat for 5 minutes if you are rushing, or 10-15 minutes if you have the time to allow the flavours to infuse.

Saffron Milk:

  • Simmer a good pinch of saffron strands in 4 tbsp of milk and reduce by half. Spoon over the rice.

Crispy fried Onions :

  • Heat 1” of oil in a medium frying pan. Add your onions and fry them over a moderate heat until they are golden. Keep moving them around in the pan so they colour evenly. Take out with a spoon and place on kitchen roll.

MADE WITH OUR DELICIOUS
Delhi Biryani

Delhi, once the Indian capital of the Mughals, is now well known and loved for its fantastic Mughlai food - a delicious blend between North Indian flavours and Mughal favourites. Our full-flavoured Delhi Biryani is a great example with its medium heat, fuller spicing and the rich complexity of tomatoes adding depth to the yoghurt sauce. The perfect dish for lovers of spice and flavour. 

It contain 3 pouches - a spiced and cooked Basmati rice, a cook-in sauce and dried, whole spices. These convenient kits are easy to use and take as little as 15 minutes to prepare. Just fry the spices, add your protein or vegetables and cook-in sauce and, once cooked, top with the rice, cover and steam.
