This tasty mushroom-packed one-pot is a speedy take on a biryani. There's plenty of flavour from our signature curry spice blend, and it's made heaps quicker with ready-to-heat basmati rice. Top it all off with a dollop of cool cucumber raita and a sprinkle of crispy fried onions. Quicker than a takeaway!
