INGREDIENTS

200 basmati rice

300ml water

1 large white onion

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

1 teaspoon mustard seeds

1 teaspoon Turmeric

1 small bunch coriander

1 tin Heinz Plant Proteinz Thai Red Curry Soup

1 pack Heinz Plant Proteinz Indian Lentils

½ cucumber

1 small bunch mint

200g Heinz Seriously Good Vegan Mayo

30ml sunflower oil

METHOD
1.

Cook basmati rice: add rice to a pan with water, place the lid on and cook until all water have been absorbed into the rice, then remove from heat, leaving the lid on for a further 15-20 minutes.

2.
Finely slice onions and place in a frying pan with the 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil, as well as the cumin seeds, mustard seeds and turmeric. Cook until the onions are soft and slightly charred. Remove from heat, place on a kitchen towel and leave until ready to construct the biryani.
3.
In a deep pan, start layering the biryani: 1st layer is cooked onions, 2nd layer is rice, 3rd layer Indian lentils, 4th layer is the Coconut & Jackfruit Soup. Repeat this until all of the pan is filled.
4.
Cover the pot with tin foil and place in a 200C oven for 30 minutes.
5.
Make the cucumber and mint raita: grate cucumber into your Heinz Seriously Good Vegan Mayo, chop a small bunch of fresh mint and mix through the mayo - using a small amount of water to water dilute the consistency of the sauce.
6.
Serve on a large plate - drizzle the biryani with the cucumber & mint raita garnish and top with chopped fresh coriander.
