Chicken - Tomato Curry
Easy, and authentic East Indian.
Biryani was originally a family of aubergine dishes cooked for Princess Burans wedding to the powerful Caliph alMamoun son of Harun alRashid in ninth century Baghdad. Her real name was Khadijah but she was better known under the pet name of Buran after a Persian princess of the seventh century. There are still dishes called braniya in both Algeria and Morocco which centre round aubergines and meat. How could this lead to present day burani or borani or in fact the indian biryani which are all glorified pilaffs? Such are the mysteries of culinary evolution! I suspect that the dish was transformed with the addition of grain in Turkey.
Serve with beer or red wine and focaccia bread or crusty rolls
Very British. Can be made with top and bottom crusts, or just top, or no crusts at all.

Every kind of fruit and vegetable – from aubergines to apricots, asparagus to artichokes – grows here in abundance, and generations of artisan producers make the greatest bread and charcuterie and patisserie that you will ever eat.
