SUPER QUICK VEGAN CHICKEN BIRYANI

SUPER QUICK VEGAN CHICKEN BIRYANI

When we’ve had a long day in the office and we get back home late, all we wanna do is cook something that’s tasty, filling and healthy, as quickly as possible. This dish ticks all the boxes. We often whip up a bowl of fancy-pants rice for dinner that only requires one pan, to maximise efficiency and minimise washing up. The flavours in this dish are wonderfully punchy and the textures are really satisfying. Great as a main with a couple of salad-sides or amazing as an accompaniment to a saucy curry.
