I first saw Faith's recipe for these gorgeous Beef Biryani bowls months and months ago and had actually put this on the shopping list. I wrote basmati rice but in my haste and sloppy scrawl I had written something that didn't resemble those words. Instead I stood at the supermarket wondering what b..... r..... item I was to pick up. Beef rissoles? Hmm unlikely. Beetroot relish? Maybe... Bacon Rinds? Definitely not.
My pantry finally stocked (I used the smoked rice I bought on my Marrickville tour) I decided, rather foolishly to make this on a day that I was hellishly busy. I thought that there was no way that I was going to get this done and photographed in time but once the beef was done I cooked the rice for ten minutes. I thought that it might be complicated to do and I may have issues unmoulding it so I tested one and it was so easy and unmolded so readily that I had dinner ready much quicker than I thought.
I took one bite and it was fantastic. The smoked basmati rice was an amazing addition and added another flavour dimension to the biryani. Adding turmeric added colour and flavour and the beef was lovely and tender inside. It could also be easily done with a vegetable curry if you prefer. It also thought that it was an interesting way to serve curry at an Indian dinner party.
They say handwriting can reveal a lot about a person. I hope that this isn't true because a cursory glance at my cursive would reveal:
a) a confused individual
b) a lost individual
c) a lazy individual
I'm not the only one with illegible handwriting. Mr NQN's admits that his is the kind of handwriting that serial killers or kidnapper's ransom notes are made out of. My illegibility could make me a doctor although I'm sure that doctors aren't as afraid of blood as I am. My poor handwriting has gotten me into trouble before. I have looked at my calendar (yes I still have an old skool calender, how ancient) and have found myself staring at an entry wondering what on earth I have scheduled myself to do at a certain time that I just cannot read.
So tell me Dear Reader, what would your handwriting reveal about you?
