Vegetable Biriyani/Briyani(With Curd Marinade)

Vegetable Biriyani (With Curd Marinade)

I am a huge of Biriyani and make it at least twice a week. I make it in multiple methodology, using different Vegetable as the Main dish etc. You can visit some Biriyani recipes I have posted here.

This is one of the lazy style of me making Biriyani. However, this is so Yummy. Do try this style.


Onion - 1 (Large, sliced)
Tomato - 1 (Small, Chopped)
Mint - 1/2 Cup (Chopped)
Rice - 1 Cup
Vegetables of your choice - 1 Cup (I used Cauliflower, Green Peas, French Beans and Potatoes)
Red Chilly Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 Teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - A generous Pinch
Garam Masala - 1/4 teaspoon
Bay Leaf - 1
Ghee (Clarified Butter) - 1Teaspoon (optional)
Curd/Yoghurt - 1 Cup (Thick)
Water - 1 Cup
Oil - 1 Tablespoon
Salt - To taste


  • Wash and Soak rice in 1 cup of Water.
  • In a mixing bowl, place the curd and whip it using a Whisk and then all the following ingredients Tomato,Mint, Vegetables, Red Chilly powder, Ginger Garlic Powder, Turmeric Powder, Garam Masala and mix well.
  • Keep this aside till your rice soaks. I have sometimes covered it with a cling film and kept in refrigerator overnight and made Biriyani using it the next day and it works fine. 
  • In a pan, warm some oil then add Bay Leaf, Onion and Saute it.
  • Cook till the Onion becomes translucent and then add the prepared mixture soaked in yoghurt.
  • Reduce the flame and cook it for 5-7 minutes. Do stir it in between to avoid it from burning.
  • Meanwhile, switch on the rice in the electric Cooker. You can make it in regular vessel also.
  • Once the water in the Rice Cooker starts boiling, add the cooked mixture and salt into the rice cooker.
  • Give it a stir and put the lid back on and cook it till done.
  • Once the rice is done, add Ghee and stir it well and Serve.
  • If you are using a vessel, once you have cooked the Onion and yoghurt mixture for 5-7 minutes, add the water.
  • Once the water starts boiling, add rice and cover it with a lid and cook till done.
