Chicken Biryani is a beautifully flavoured rice dish that is often layered with a spiced chicken/mutton/beef/vegetarian gravy and rice that is infused with whole spices. Traditionally, a chicken biryani involves a lot of steps including marinating the meat, frying the vegetables for layering, loads of coriander and mint leaves, fried eggs, saffron milk etc. My version is a simplified recipe that gives you those exquisite flavours.
Serve with some plain yoghurt and lemon pickle or kachumbari.
Who doesn’t like a barbecue? That char flavour on the meat is just heavenly. However, sometimes you just don’t have the energy to fire up the jiko and that’s when my recipe comes in handy. This barbecue pork fried rice was a favourite at my dinner table. The pork was so good that my husband ate a lot of the barbecue pork by itself. If you like, feel free to pull the meat apart, add some more barbecue sauce and enjoy it in a sandwich.
