Chef’s Choice: Lamb Biryani

By Aug 11, 2019 Chef's Choice

This week’s Chef’s Choice is probably the most loved dish in the UAE overall. We don’t think there are very many people living in this country who haven’t tasted the iconic Biryani!

Every region in the Arabian peninsula and the Indian subcontinent certainly have their own version of Biryani. From these areas the dish has made its way to hungry diners’ plates in every continent.

We wanted to be bold and create our Hello Chef version of the recipe – respecting the aromatic, indulging and comforting flavours of the classic. So, get ready to skip the home delivery and make the best Biryani at home!

Here’s the direct link to Hello Chef’s recipe card: Lamb Biryani with Green Beans and Sultanas. The preparation is easy. The prep time is minimal – you only need to chop onion and green beans.

Then you can already set yourself in front of the stove and start by frying the lamb mince. When it’s nicely browned, just add a generous selection of carefully chosen spices and give it a few good turns. Enjoy the scent! All the essential flavours are starting to develop.

In goes the rice along with raisins, green beans and chicken stock. They get to stew together in the perfect harmony until the rice is cooked. Everything that’s left to do is to check the seasoning, add some cashew nuts for crunch, and serve the Biriyani with dollops of natural yogurt.

We can’t wait for you to try it. It is. So. Good. Enjoy!

What else is good next week?

Start your week with a comforting soup! We have a Finnish Salmon Soup on the menu to celebrate Chef Olivia’s Scandinavian roots. This dish uses only a moderate amount of cream, so that it’s creamy, but still very healthy.

Whip up a hearty bowl! The Chicken Teriyaki Donburi Bowl with Pak Choi has flavourful and tender pulled chicken, filling brown rice and lots of crunchy vegetables in it.

We always recommend to select at least one vegetarian or vegan dish into your box. They are good for the planet, and good for you – not to mention delicious! One of our top choices of the week is Spicy Re-fried Bean Tacos with Pineapple Salsa. Go easy on the chipotle powder if you can’t handle the heat!

For all the love birds wishing for a date night, we suggest choose to cook our Fillet Steak in Creamy Lentil Sauce with Fried Tomatoes and Parmesan. Your evening meal couldn’t get more satisfying than this!
