Vegetable Biriyani

Vegetable Biriyani

This is my youngest BIL's (Chandu) favourie. Whenever he visits us I ensure I make it for him. He says that I am best in Vegetable Biriyani. There are so many ways to make this. I am sharing the most easiest and foolproof method to make this.


Rice - 1 Cup (Washed and Soaked in 2 cups of water for 20 minutes)
Aniseed,Black cardamom,Bay leaf,Cinnamon stick - 1 each
Onion - 1(Big,Sliced)
Mint Leaves - 1/2 Cup (Cleaned and washed)
Tomato - 1(Medium Sliced)
Vegetable of your choice - 1 Cup (I have used Parboiled Potato,Green Peas and Cauliflower)
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 Tablespoon
Green Chilly - 1 Slit
Chilly Powder - 1 Tablespoon
Garam Masala - 1/4 Teaspoon
Oil and Salt - To taste


In the Vessel, add oil and add all the whole Spices. Then add the onions.
Once the onion is cooked,add the mint leaves and sauté for a minute.
Then add the Tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Then add the ginger Garlic paste and cook for 3 minutes.

Then add the Red chilly powder,Garam masala and Green chilly and sauté for 2-3 minutes.

Then add the vegetables and sauté for 5 minutes or till your vegetable is 40% done.
Then add the water in which the rice was soaked. Once the water comes to a boil add the rice, stir slowly and carefully not to break the rice.

Once the rice is 90% done, add required amount of salt and stir.

Cover with a lid and cook till the rice and vegetables are cooked well. While cooking, ensure that you stir in between so the rice and vegetable is cooked.
