Where's the omelette on the top? The sauce ingredients seem too chunky as well, it should be using pre frozen veg to my mind...

A word of CAUTION when making this - don't use mix powder with chilli in - it causes choking whilst frying the rice. i had jb mix powder to hand and used it without realising this very important fact.

a real big thanks to Dipuraja for making this dish possible to me.

i love naan bread with curry but now and again rice is a very nice change.

i really like this recipe as i can prep it all in advance (even make the curry sauce) and the final frying of the rice and microwave pinging of the sauce makes for a very simple and quick top notch tea.

i'm now completely sorted on the recipe. after much in and out i've ditched the sultana (hated vesta). i now add coconut flour (1 htbsp per portion) just at the end and fry till i get the coconut aroma.

it's just pure pleasure and most certainly BIR standard.

Cooked this tonight for my boys and I think I must have doen something wrong as I still feel it was missing something! I will try again and see if the result differs. I just found the rice lacking that je ne sais quoi :(

benbob,

only a thought but the cold rice used for the recipe needs to be pilau ie spiced with whole spices.

It was pilau rice I made it on Thursday. I think I either caught the spices or my mix is a touch over Garam'd, lol. Deffo gonna make it again can't expect to hit the nail first time.

benbob,

you're very right - most of us can't expect to nail 1st time.

i for sure don't overdo the spices and certainly keep the garam low.

i'd also have a go at splitting the batches into small amounts. the well cooking of the onion and the methi (which i'm not normally keen on) seems to do it for me.

i must admit though that i'd like to pin down any other ingredients that could turn this into a gem of a dish - re link http://www.curry-recipes.co.uk/curry/index.php?topic=7894.msg69605#msg69605

best wishes

Jerry,

Splitting into smaller batches could help, I did have my 30cm deep pan full of pilau rice. I guess its just s process of elimination until I get it right. Either way the kids loved it and that was the main thing. The Biryani coupled with a Bhuna and a Tarka Dal worked very well indeed just seamed to be missing something, weather thats my techinque or the recipe only time will tell.

Thanks for the feedback Jerry its much appreciated, I've been cooking curies without having others to bounce ideas off for far to long!

I've just made this. I added a tbsp of coconut milk powder towards the end.

For the sauce I didn't add any vegetables at all. I just made a curry sauce with a pinch of chilli.

It was beautiful.  :)
