Ingredients (Serves

  • 2 tsp butter

  1. Heat the butter, Latasha’s Kitchen Biriyani Masala Paste and curry leaves over gentle heat and slowly sizzle for a few minutes.
  2. Increase the heat to medium, add the tomatoes, mushrooms and chickpeas then cook for ten minutes or until the mushrooms are ready.


Great with eggs − use 1-2 per person depending on appetites

  • A plain omelette OR omelette with chives or leftover sweet potato OR eggs anyway you fancy.
  • Garnish with diced avocado for a creamy finish.

  • Handful of greens, finely sliced


  1. Heat the oil.
