For an extra dose of flavor, we looked to vadouvan, a mild French-style curry powder that usually contains shallots and garlic. You can find it at specialty spice shops and online, though any mild curry powder will work.
Ground sumac berries and tahini paste, both staples in Middle Eastern cuisine, are the secret ingredients that bring a splash of unexpected flavor to this creamy soup. To make it extra fancy, try using purple or orange cauliflower for the crispy cauliflower topping.

A traditional Indian dish, Biryani is typically made with basmati rice and layered with spiced chicken before baking.

We suggest getting a head start on cooking the Kamut in Step One before chopping or measuring your other ingredients. To reduce cooking time, you can also soak Kamut overnight in water.
