SW recipe: Lamb biryani

Ready in 40 minutes, plus soaking and 7 hours in slow cooker

Serves 4


300g dried basmati rice
400ml boiling lamb stock
3 medium onions, sliced
4 garlic cloves, crushed
4cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and finely grated
Low-calorie cooking spray
600g lean lamb leg steaks, all visible fat removed, cut into small chunks
2 tsp mild chilli powder
2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground cloves
250g fat-free natural yogurt, plus extra sprinkled with paprika to serve
3 bay leaves
Large pinch of saffron threads, chopped
Fresh coriander, to serve


Soak the rice in cold water for 30 minutes, then tip into a sieve and rinse under cold running water.

Pour 300ml stock into a large lidded non-stick frying pan over a low heat and add the onions, garlic and ginger. Cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Increase the heat to high, remove the lid and cook until the stock has evaporated. Tip the onions into the slow cooker pot.

Wipe the pan with kitchen paper, spray with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the lamb and fry until browned on all sides. Stir in the spices plus a pinch of salt and ½ tsp coarsely ground black pepper. Pour in the remaining stock, bring to the boil and remove from the heat. Cool slightly then stir in the yogurt and pour into the slow cooker pot. Add the bay leaves.

Meanwhile, cook the rice in a saucepan of boiling water over a high heat for 5 minutes. While the rice is cooking, mix the saffron with 2 tbsp hot water and leave to stand for 5 minutes.

Drain the rice well and spoon it over the lamb mixture to cover. Using a teaspoon, drizzle evenly spaced lines of the saffron water over the rice. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours or until the rice is tender.

Fluff up the rice with a fork, scatter over the coriander and serve with the paprika-sprinkled yogurt and a salsa made up of diced cucumber and tomatoes on the side on the side.
