A Tuesday Recipe - Layered Vegetable Biryani

Suitable for vegetarians, food fetishists, the anti-fat lobby and anyone else trying to deny the omnivorous nature of the human animal.

Layered Vegetable Biryani

This is what it looks like cut into.

I am not averse to vegetarian meals and because I like curried vegetables this is a cracker. The vegetables you use is entirely up to you. I had carrot, potato, green beans and red pepper available and used spring onions and dry roasted peanuts on the top although it recommends cashews. 
This would also make quite a good starter and I had a small amount followed by a beef curry with chapatis (sorry veggies!)

The full recipe is on the TAB

Lab grown beefburger eaten in London! 

The world's first lab-grown burger was cooked and eaten at a news conference in London on Monday.
Scientists took cells from a cow and, at an institute in the Netherlands, turned them into strips of muscle that they combined to make a patty.

Upon tasting the burger, Austrian food researcher Ms Ruetzler said: "I was expecting the texture to be more soft... there is quite some intense taste; it's close to meat, but it's not that juicy. The consistency is perfect, but I miss salt and pepper."

Food writer Mr Schonwald said: "The mouthfeel is like meat. I miss the fat, there's a leanness to it, but the general bite feels like a hamburger.
"What was consistently different was flavour."

Prof Mark Post, of Maastricht University, the scientist behind the burger, remarked: "It's a very good start."

I won't comment on the comments - they speak for themselves.
