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!

Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: equipment and pan sizes vary. Ensure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Boil a kettle
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat
Meanwhile, microwave the steamed pure basmati rice according to packet instructions
Tip: if you're cooking two packets, pop them in together but increase the microwave cook time accordingly!
Once hot, tear the portobello mushrooms into large pieces, add them to the pan and cook for 2 min
Meanwhile, combine the vegetable stock cube[s], tomato paste, mango chutney and sultanas with 200ml [350ml] boiled water – this is your tomato stock
Crumble the chestnut mushrooms into the pan and add the curry powder and garlic paste
Cook for 1 min or until fragrant
Add the heated rice to the pan with the tomato stock and increase the heat to high
Give everything a good mix up and cook for 2 min or until the mushrooms are softened – this is your mushroom biryani
Meanwhile, grate the cucumber
Combine the grated cucumber with the natural yoghurt and a pinch of salt and pepper – this is your cucumber raita
Set the mushroom biryani in the centre of the table, ready to share
Dollop over the cucumber raita, garnish with the fried onions and let everyone dig in
