Ohhh my new best friend, Biryani. This was one of the first meals I have cooked that was really out of my cooking comfort zone but it turned out brilliantly. I am going to take that and use it as a metaphor for life. ‘Live life on the edge.. or something?..’ This vegetarian paneer biryani did just that.
Whats a dish you made that was a bit of a challenge?
Last week I listened to the Bond Appetit Podcast Recipe 034 where the topic of a traditional Biryani was discussed. For those unsure of what a Biryani Is, it’s an Indian/South Asian dish made with highly seasoned rice and meat, fish, or vegetables.
This posed a problem for me – I couldn’t get damn Biryani off my mind. The only solution I could see to this issue was to make a vegetarian biryani.
I made this recipe for Ronsley over at Bond Appetit and had to share it with you today.
So.. I have done something a little different this time with the recipe.
It required a lot of text so to make it easier to read and follow, I have created a printable Recipe Card that you can download if you’re after the recipe.

It.was.amazing. The flavour of all the fragrant spices mixed together along with the rice, tomato, paneer cheese and fried onion is hard to beat.
I am going to make this again and make ene more this time to freeze for those nights were cooking just isn’t an options.
Have you ever had a Biryani before? Or have any other Indian/South Asian dish you recommend I try out?
