It's curry night here in the BOSH house and boy do we love indian food!!

If you're hosting a curry night or looking for a simple indian dish, the humble biryani always goes down well. We worked hard to design this vegan biryani as delicious as we possibly could.

A great plantbased meal for one, or two or a big dinner party idea!

The full recipe is in BISH BASH BOSH! which is available to buy right now.
