MADE WITH OUR DELICIOUS
Malabar Biryani

Inspired by the costal flavours of the Malabar region and traced back to dishes made by Muslim and Arab traders who settled here, this Biryani is mild in heat but aromatic and complex in flavour. Favoured local spices are interwoven with rich tomatoes and tempered with white poppy seeds and coconut. This dish is truly something special. An exciting and flavour-packed dish that might seem new but is soon loved by everyone.

Our Biryanis 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 and steam on the hob.
