Chicken Biryani Recipe
Serves 4
1. Heat 5 tbsp oil in a pan, add 1 sliced onion & cook until soft. 2. Add 2 tsp (each) finely chopped ginger & garlic, & 1/2 a jar of Patak's Biryani spice paste, cook for 1-2 minutes. Add 50ml water; cook until the water has evaporated. 3. Remove from heat, gradually stir in 200g set yogurt, 100ml water, 300g diced chicken thigh, 3 tbsp tomato purée & 1/2 tsp sugar, return to heat, cook until sealed, simmer uncovered until the chicken is tender (approx. 20 mins). 4. In a large casserole dish, starting with the chicken & sauce mixture, layer the biryani using 800g cooked Basmati rice, alternating layers; ensure the last layer is rice. Garnish with 3 tbsp fresh chopped coriander, 1 1/2 tbsp fresh chopped mint & 2 tbsp finely shredded ginger. Cover with aluminium foil & the lid, cook in a pre-heated oven 180°C/160°c fan/350°f/Gas 4 for 45 minutes to an hour, until piping hot. Serve hot with Raita or plain yogurt.

Try crackling
1 cinnamon stick, 4 green cardamom and 1/2 tsp cumin seeds in hot oil to release their sweet aromatic flavours into the oil before frying the onion for that true Indian home cooking experience.
