Please note this is based on the recipe serving 3 people.

If possible, use a casserole dish / dutch oven to cook your biryani. If you don’t have one, use a deep, non-stick saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.

  • Put the basmati rice in a bowl of warm water and set to one side to soak.
  • Slice the spring onion tops, cut the pepper into bite size chunks and chop the coriander stalks and leaves, keeping them separate.
  • Cut the chicken thighs into bite sized pieces.
  • Heat the oil in the pan and fry off the coriander stalks, spring onion tops, bay leaf and cardamom pods until fragrant.
  • Add the chicken and fry until the meat is sealed on all sides.
  • Add the pepper and cook for a further minute.
  • Drain your rice and rinse with cold water until it runs clear. Distribute the rice in an even layer over the top of the chicken and peppers.
  • Pour the jar of Bay’s Kitchen Tikka Masala Stir-in Sauce over the top of the rice. Add 200ml of water to the jar, replace the lid and shake to loosen the remaining sauce, then tip this over the top of the rice too.
  • Cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid, bring to a boil, then simmer for 7 minutes before turning off the heat.
  • Leave for 10 minutes – the heat should steam the rice so it’s perfectly cooked – if not, you can leave it a little longer.
  • Top with the chopped coriander leaves and serve with yoghurt (if using).

  1. I bought a few of your sauces and tried the tomato and basil in a pasta dish.
    It was yummy!
    I can honestly say better then any other shop bought sauces I have bought over the years.
    I am on the Fodmap diet due to digestive problems and dreaded the thought of it.
    You have certainly opened my eyes to what we can make.
    Brilliant Bays Kitchen.
    I will be back with another order!
