I made a Lamb Briyani tonight …which is the same recipe as Durban Indian Chicken Briyani .
I served it with Tarka Dhal and made this Christmas salad wreath with a cucumber raita centre to add a festive flavour to our Pre-Xmas dinner at our holiday home in the Mornington Peninsula.
I just put a small side plate in the middle of the platter and then layered the salad around it with a simple vinegar, oil and sugar dressing. The colour and texture are up to you. I used finely chopped iceberg, shredded carrot, quick pickled red onions and wedges of tomato. I filed the centre with cucumber raita but this Grape and Apple Raita would be lovely too.
