Cheats Biryani inter-layered with chicken, potatoes and then creamy dal, then follows
infustion of Kewra water, crispy onions, ghee and plenty fresh coriander.
The dal takes it to another level!
Biryani is usually a solution to a non fussy dinner or easy entertaining but what makes this even more wonderful is the thick layer of dal, in this case as it makes for a unique dish . This simply makes this Cheats biryani even more superb as its almost like a deconstructed dhansak meal delivered on your plate.
I always feel the need to have a dal with my biryani as I feel it can be a little dry a dish. But not when I make it like this as that simple layer just adds the right amount of looseness that I like but with another dimension. Here are some recipes for Dal- Lentils
Why it’s a cheats Biryani?
Add to that it’s a cheats Biryani. I actually used leftover curries from any dinner parties the day before. You can use any curry you have, paneer, meat, chicken or fish!
I just layered the heated curries and rice.
Each rice layer I used liberal amounts of ghee, fried onions, fresh coriander and sprinkle of kewra water.
Finished with sprinkle of water and placed in a hot oven covered with foil to steam up.
I find its a great way to use up leftover curries and for me a layer of dal just makes it amazing!
Serve with salad and mint sauce!
