Chicken Biryani Actifry Style

Biryani

Chicken Biryani is a family favourite in the Gourmand household, I find it’s a great way to use up rice and any leftover vegetables that you have in the fridge, I designed this recipe while going through a stage of making one pot meals however if you don’t happen to have any leftover rice you will need two pots.  As I’ve said before with my actifry dishes, timings do vary and you should trust your own instincts when it comes to your actifry.

To make this you will need:

1 Tablespoon of Oil

1 onion diced

2 Cloves garlic, crushed

1 Tsp Ginger grated

1 Tsp Salt

1 Tsp ground Cumin

1 Tsp ground Coriander

1/2 Tsp Chili powder

2 plum Tomatoes chopped finely

1 Small pot of Plain Yogurt

4 Mushrooms chopped

8 Green beans cut into 3

2 Chicken breasts chopped

Coriander to serve

Leftover rice

Method:

Put the oil and chicken into the Actifry and cook until lightly browned 8-10 minutes.

Add the vegetables and spices and cook for 2-3 minutes

Add the yoghurt and cook for 8-10 minutes until everything is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.

Add the rice and cook until the  rice has started to soak up the sauce 8-10 minutes.

Sprinkle with coriander and enjoy.

This is a lot wetter than a traditional Biryani but it is incredibly delicious and very satisfying.  Do let me know if you make this in your actifry.
