Green Day Syn free 1 pot chicken & rice curry

#1
I have just made this for tea. I found a recipe for biryani and altered it to suit slimming world, and to suit paella rice cause its so easy to cook. It does seem like a lot of different spices I know, but they are not expensive, last a long time, and you end up with a much better flavour than a ready made paste. We thought it was smashing & tasted like a "proper" curry - Hope you like it!
