Farmfoods has now become my firm favourite with 1kg of frozen chicken breast for £3.95. :)

We've had the smoked haddock from there which is reasonable and the missus makes a really nice Kedgeree with it.

We get either 5kg of chicken breast for about £19 / £20 a box or we find that Booker's cash and carry's frozen chicken (breasts or diced) are quite good. Lamb mince is £5 kg at at the Indian shop. We were getting frozen tiger prawns shelled, tailed and de-veined delivered to work which worked out about £5:80 for a kilo bag (800gms defrosted) but you had to buy them in boxes of 10 which wasn't really a problem as we easily sold them on to people at work. The company have now stopped delivering so we are trying to source them else where. They were fabulous.

January - We went back (6 of us) and it was really nice. A couple of them went back the same night in the early hours. When I'm working away it's definitely the favourite one we go to.

Ordered one last week along with a couple of others whilst at work (4th one I've had) Definitely wasn't up to previous ones. The Chicken Tikka Masala was the brightest red I've ever seen. Sometimes I wonder if the same chefs on duty ?????

Digressing a bit, what would you class as a standard size take-away portion. Most of the ones round where I live do the 197 x 105 x 49mm ones as a standard size portion (foil1) but I have been to ones (usually in smaller towns were they hold the monopoly) which do the smaller ones as a standard size (foil2)?

Here's tonights offerings. A 'traditional style' chicken biryani with a vegetable sauce. I've wanted to try the layer type Biryani for ages now and after looking at a few recipes I decided on this one as it seemed easy for starting off with plus it was on the Currylicious calender my missus had that we got on the cheap through the link below. I used red birds eye chillies instead of green chillies as well as they seem to be multiplying in my fridge drawer.
Recipe here. (shes mental  ;D)

I accompanied it with Dip's biryani sauce for which I increased the chili powder as we prefer the sauce with a bit more kick and precooked what veg was in the house which was broccoli, couple potatoes, carrot and some mushrooms. i also chucked in some left over cabbage and the pre-cooked onions from the biryani which were supposed to go on top. Both myself and the missus and the daughter have gave it the big thumbs up. I would have quite happily paid for it in a restaurant (even though I cooked it myself). We've got a few people coming round in a couple of weeks so along with yesterdays sheek kebabs, its now on the list.

I froze the left over base today which I had doubled up when I made it. I probably got about 22 - 300ml portion out of it all together which is far more than I thought I would initially get. Once I've worked my way through those, Cory Ander is next on the hit list, Can't wait.

Photos are Veg sauce, Chicken Biryani and plated meal.

And before some people pick it up, yes I do have a favourite fork. :)
And my 'Zeeshan International' (stamped on the bottom) ?6.99 curry pan is excellent.


For those that like a command line approach to grabbing streaming video...not confined to youtube can download from sites like vimeo etc.

You can download from Vimeo without any grabbing required.  :)

Not that I would get one of course but I would probably get it off my head of the missus if one crossed the doorstep. At least with a set of skewers its a fair fight.  ;)

Doesn't look too shabby at all.  ;) get yourself some big boy's 8mm square profile skewers. You won't regret it  :D

I was looking at the skewers today in the Indian shop I've been using. Might be my next purchase.
