Tasty Meal that needs Help to stop the Dryness
I agree with other Comments regarding this dish being to Dry think probably due to the Incentive to over cook, because of the Chicken its a natural thing to do especially when in the past we all have read the instructions, and find they are usually wrong so therefore give it extra time. I also added Butter and it brought this Dish back to life again.My Advice is exactly what previous Reviews have said add Butter and stir it in, and you find this turns the Dish into a very Tasty decent Meal.
Another Yummy Favorite of Mine
Another favorite of mine. Yes it can be a little dry BUT if you try it with some of less fat Creme Fraiche it is yummy! I read one review that said they add butter, so will give that a go.
A tasty quick alternative to a takeaway
Lots of flavour. Big pieces of tender chicken. I put mango chutney on mine. Was delicious
Easy answer to the dryness issues with this dish
This is one of my regular faves BUT only after a simple solution to all the dryness problems. After the microwave cooking time, peel back the film lid just enough to add several good dollops of butter. Then close the lid and give it the 2 mins standing time (I put mine back in the microwave with the door closed to keep it hot). Give it a really good stir through before serving, then the melted butter results in lovely soft rice and the spices become almost saucy. I think this simple idea should be added to the pack instructions, it works so well! From inedibly dry to yummy...
Very poor. Nothing like biryani - no flavour and desperate for salt. Purely dryish rice with lumps of chicken and onion. Worst ready meal we have had so will not be repeated. Had this been the first ready meal we had had from Tesco, it would also have been the last!!
Did not like this very much and was disappointed the chicken and rice was packed in the same dish there was large pieces of shallot and not very much sauce , i like the Masala and the indiam lamb rogan best of all
Top tip : Serve with Chinese curry sauce. Its ama
Top tip : Serve with Chinese curry sauce. Its amazingly good.
Avoid. The let down of an otherwise good range.
Really, really horrible - which is surprising as the rest of the range is really quite good. A sparse few lumps of chicken and a three or four massive onions slices in dry, nasty tasting spiced rice. This was a pitiful stab at a meal by someone who has never actually seen a biryani, let alone actually tasted one. Avoid, go for the chicken tikka masala or butter chicken instead.
One of the tastiest supermarket curries I have eaten. I hope it never changes. Would highly recommend if you like a dry curry.
I have this at least once a week & really enjoy it
