How to make Vegetable biryani - Recipe for Vegetable biryani

Vegetable biryani is my husband's favorite. He loves this as good as he loves me :)
This biryani is very easy to make. It can be made within 20 to 30 minutes.

Let us see how to make this biryani in Tanish Kitchen.

Ingredients:
Rice - 1 cup basmati
Onion - 1 handful (cut into length wise)
Mint - 1 handful
Carrots - 1/2 cup(chopped)
Beans - 1/2 cup (chopped)
Cauli flower - 1/2 cup (chopped)
Peas - 1/4 cup (washed)
Mixed bell pepper - 1/4 cup(green, yellow and red).
Potato - 1 (medium)
Tomato -  1 (medium) chopped
Curd(Yogurt) - 1/4 cup
Green chilli - 2 nos
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp
Whole garam masala - cloves, cardamom, bay leaves & cinnamon sticks
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 3 tsp
Corainder leaves - some
Salt to taste

Method:
1. Soak the basmati rice for about 30 mins. Add some salt and cook the rice with one and half water. Once the rice is cooked, cool the rice.
2. Take the big pan, heat with 3 tsp of oil. Put the whole garam masala. Once garam masala gets into golden color, add the onion and green chilli. Stir for a minute and now add gingergarlic paste.
3. Add the beans first as it will take more time to cook. Cook it for 3 mins and then add potato, cauli flower, carrot, some salt. Mix it well and cook for a minute. Add tomato and turmeric. Cook until the mix gets soft.
4. Now add the peas and mixed bell pepper, cook for a minute. Add curd. Mix it very well. Cover the pan to cook for 2 minutes.
5. Now add corainder leaves and cooked white rice. Mix it gently.

6. Biryani is ready to be served.

What is the difference than other methods:
One point to note here is we are cooking rice and vegetable separately. The vegetables gets salt, spicy and cooked correctly so biryani gets good flavor and taste. Usually many people use pressure cooker and put both rice and vegetables together. Due to this vegetables will be mashed. But in our method as we are cooking separately, biryani gets good flavor and taste.

All raitas are good combination for this biryani. To know more about different raitas available @ Tanish Kitchen, please do visit this page.
