Bryani

Another recipe from Mary McDougall. The book says it serves 4, but not in this house. I usually double this recipe and it serves the three of us for dinner plus enough left over for one serving for lunch the next day.

If you have a slow-cooker, you can also dump all the ingredients in the pot in the morning, set it on Low, and come home to a nice hot meal 8 to 10 hours later.

This is timely. We just had Trader Joe's Briyani for dinner tonight, purchased last week knowing it'd be a crazy holiday week. As we ate it (and it was vegan & fatfree), I was thinking I needed to find a recipe to make it from scratch. Thanks!
