    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    If you are like us and enjoy Indian food but are a bit daunted by the idea of cooking it then this biryani could be a good place to start for you. It is a fairly easy one dish meal and you can control the spice levels by picking the strength of curry paste that your family would enjoy.

      Wow! This recipe will be repeated many times in my household. We loved it! Very simple and fast to put together, clear instructions for a quick family meal. I added a little toasted coconut to the top for extra flavour. Thanks for posting, this was GREAT! Made for ZWT 6 :)

      Wow - I found this to be a not only tasty but fairly quick and extremely versatile recipe. I used red curry paste, omitted the raisins (no one here will eat them in curries) and replaced one cup of water with light coconut milk. Served with garlic naan bread. We really enjoyed this recipe and I'll definitely use it again - there are so many curry pastes out there that the variations are virtually limitless. Thanks so much for the recipe!
