Spiced masala biryani

“My take on the curry-house favourite is definitely tastier and more affordable than a takeaway. Thanks to some M&S shortcut ingredients, it’s super easy too.” - chef Chris Baber

    This is a fantastic crowd pleasing recipe. Once prepared and stuck in the oven my 4 boys are in the kitchen like a shot. Fills the house with beautiful spice smell.. so delicious and fills lots of tummys. Love the fact that it’s a mix between a little cooking and a little cheating! That’s our secret M&S🤫. Top recipe, thanks Chris👍
