Cook’s tip

A biriyani can be made entirely using store cupboard ingredients, making it a great supper to turn to when the fridge is empty. Other staples work really well here, too. Try adding some red lentils with the rice or use canned beans and vegetables such as essential Waitrose green beans or petits pois with baby carrots.
