Easy veggie biryani
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
This tasty Indian-inspired dish is faster than a takeaway
- STEP 1
Boil the kettle. Get out a large microwaveable bowl and pile in the rice, veg and raisins.
- STEP 2
Pour 600ml/1 pint boiling water over the rice mixture and crumble in the stock cube, then stir in the curry paste. Cover the bowl with cling film, leaving a small gap at the side to let out the steam. Cook on full power (850 watts) for 12 minutes – if your microwave is less powerful, add 2 minutes.
- STEP 3
Remove from the microwave and stand, still covered, for 5 minutes to complete the cooking – if you don’t let it stand the rice will be too nutty. Fluff up the rice, scatter with cashews and serve.
