Sorry, no photographs.
Kit delivered yesterday and this dish was marked as use by 29th January but the beans were already beginning to rot and I threw several mushy and slimy ones out.
Not a good start
Not really a Biriyani as I know it, more of a curry-flavoured risotto – but it was rated at 15 minutes cooking time so I expect it is aimed at people who don’t really want to cook rather than enthusiastic cooks who love to eat. No garlic or ginger involved, nor any esoteric spices – just onion and a packet of curry powder.
There was plenty to eat and I struggled to finish even without eating much chapati, which the dog enjoyed on my behalf.
I liked: that the French beans remained al dente
I disliked: lack of chilli heat, unsubtle flavour, stickiness/stodgy rice
Verdict: quick and easy but dull and lacking in flavour. Would not buy this again.
