Hyderabadi Biryani



This has been a crazy busy week and weekend!  I haven't even turned on the computer in the last 3 days!  The start of this week does not look any better, but hopefully by Wed I will be back to normal.  At least that is what I keep telling myself!  But there is an end in site, so that is good.

So what do you do when you are so busy?  Do you rely on takeout, frozen meals, cereal?  What?  I try to plan ahead for the week, so even in busy times I have a plan and can still eat real food.  But I do rely on some convenience items.  That is not a bad thing either!

This is one convenience item that I LOVE!  It is quick and easy, but it is amazing.  The brand Kitchens of India sells premixed season pastes for a variety of Curry and other Indian dishes.  We love them!  They are authentic in flavor, without all the work.  We have tried the Butter Chicken Curry, Chicken Curry and the Hyderabadi Biryani.  All 3 of them are truly wonderful, and we eat them even when we are not in a rush!

This one is the Hyderabadi Biryani.  You mix in some lemon curd, so it has some sweet and tart and spice.  Cook up some rice, and you have an excellent dinner.  You could even get some store bought Naan bread and have a full Indian dinner!

Hope you had a great weekend!  Hopefully I will be catching up on blogs by the end of the week!

I have to admit that sometimes I cut a corner or two for time's sake. Last night I used boxed scalloped potatoes (hanging my head in shame). Your chicken looks so much better than our potatoes, and probably tasted better too.

I'm all for convenience dishes. This looks very flavorful and spicy. : )

I've been so close to posting review of food stuff we've eaten over the past few weeks but I can't even seem to do that. I got out of my cooking/blogging rhythm and getting back into it is not so easy.

We just had Biryani a few weeks ago for the first time and loved it. I got the impression that it's a dish that probably has lots of componets, so I love that you found such a great looking shortcut!

I'm all about the quick fix these days...I just can't catch up. This looks yummy, and different from the usual. Will definitely give it a try! Thanks!

Great tip! I am going to look for this brand. My cheater tip is microwave steam in the bag brocoli florets. My kids love it, believe it or not. Thanks for stopping by my site!

Yep - quick fix is often necessary. I find it especially needed at the beginning and end of the school year. Crazy times.

Thank you so much for that info. I'm temporially sharing a kitchen so I can't take up too much time in the kitchen and miss my Indian (and Asian) dishes so that info will be put to great use).

Wow..this looks so good! And I love the addition of lemon curd. It must give it a sweet little tang! : )

This looks delicious! Must try it sometime

I really like curry but don't make it very often. I will look for those seasoning mixes, they sound perfect. Hope you can catch your breath soon!

When you're busy, you're busy...sometimes life gets in the way for all of us!

I agree, nothing wrong with using those mixes. Sometimes its a fortune to buy all the spices and ingredients for various cuisines too!! I gotta give these a try!

Looks very good.. You can even mix the curry with rice and let it sit in the oven on low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, so that all the flavor will get infused to the rice...

Yum! Yum! Yum!

Woah, lemon curd!?!?!? That sounds awesome!

I say cheat when you need to and don't worry about it. Life first, blogging second. This looks incredibly tasty.
