Pattani Biryani Or Pakki Mutton Biryani, Mirch Ka Salan & Spring Onion and Peanut Raita

Tips for preparation : It is always helpful if the vegetables are cut and put away in the fridge for easy use for dinners on a weeknight. But always cut onions just before you are using them as onions have a tendency to absorb bad odours from the fridge, thereby reducing the quality of your onions.

Rajma Chawal & Boondi Raita

Asian Dinner

Tips for preparation: Keep the noodles ready by boiling them beforehand. You can also make the galette dough ready, so that it takes less time to make your dessert. For vegetarians, you can add Tofu or Paneer instead of Chicken in the Noodles.
