Laziza Biryani Mix

I’ve had a few people asking me for the biryani recipe I posted on my Instagram a few days ago, so I thought I’d write a post about it so people can refer to it when needed!

I use Laziza Biryani Mix spice which is syn free. You can keep the whole dish syn free by replacing the oil with a syn free spray oil or count the syns accordingly if using regular cooking oil. Remember 1 tbsp of oil (regardless of what type – sunflower, vegetable, olive etc) is 6 syns. I know a lot of my members use only water to fry the onions which is possible but may be a little time consuming.

I also use a fat free natural yogurt instead and sometimes I even leave the yogurt step out if I don’t have any and it tastes just as good too!

I cook for a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children) and use half of one of the spice packets as that is spicy enough for my family, I don’t use the whole packet. I like my food super spicy so I usually cut up green chillies to add to my food separately.

I follow the recipe on the back of the spice box and once I’ve layered the rice with the chicken/meat, I add a few drops of yellow food colouring to the top of the rice to add some colour to the rice. And that is it! It really is a very easy and simple recipe to follow.

 

I absolutely love the Laziza brand spices as most are syn free and they are very easy to follow, even if you are not a very confident cook. Hope this helps those that were wondering how to make biryani Slimming World friendly 🙂

If you do anything differently please do share how you make yours.

      Hi Shanaz, I don’t know if that is free as I’ve never used it. Have a look at the list of ingredients in the mix, make sure there’s no sugar, flour or oil listed and it will be free. Hope this helps.

      Is the brand National syn free? The app don’t cover these so it would be helpful if somebody points it out and now that the books have changed I dont know if it being free from oil, flour and sugar still applies. The sindhi Biryani One that I used the other day had none of these so I assumed it was syn free.

      Hi, I don’t know as I do not use shaan masala. Have a look through the ingredients listed and make sure there is no oil, flour or sugar listed. If it is just dried spices then it will be free. Hope this helps.
