Patak Biryani Curry Paste - MILD (Coriander and Cumin) 280g
Indian Curry-Spice-Blend for Cooking (Spicyness: Medium)
Our pastes are our pride and joy... our holy grail, our crown jewels, so to speak. That's because, quite simply, they make the most delicious and authentic tasting curries. Patak's pastes are all made from top secret family recipes, and are a blend of specially selected, authentic spices preserved in oil. Many Indian restaurants use ready made pastes such as ours to make their dishes - so so pick up one of our pastes, grab yourself an apron.... and see if you can't recreate that restaurant taste at home.
Completely unlike your usual saucy curries, a Biryani is a dry rice dish with added spices & meat or veggies - the paella of Indian food if you will...... A Biryani is traditionally cooked in an oven, but you can use this Biryani Paste to create a restaurant-quality Biryani on the stove - or give our new Oven-Bake Easy Biryani sauces a go.
