Cooking At Moms: Vegetable Biryani, Butter Chicken & Raita

This time around, I made a much simpler lunch/dinner at mom's. I tried out Aartee's One Pot Biryani which turned out to be almost too easy for how good it was! I didn't use chicken, instead I used some mixed, frozen veggies. I also made Butter Chicken and Raita, which consisted of a bunch of spring onions, loads of cilantro, some mint, salt, sugar and black pepper. I also had some pita breads on hand, because I feel you can't eat Butter Chicken without some sort of bread.

I also tried Bong Mom's Condensed Milk Pound Cake with Chocolate Swirls. I mixed the chocolate swirls with some condensed milk that was leftover in the can and although my cake seemed to sink in the middle, it turned into a dense, pudding consistency and the taste was amazing. We couldn't stop eating it!

Later that day, Chelsea was found eating the left over remnants of butter chicken with cold, hardened bread... She really can't get enough of her favorite Butter Chicken :)
