Vegetable Biryani

Vegetable Biryani is the most common main course for vegan people. It's very easy to cook and tastes really delicious and healthy.

You Need:

Vegetables (Carrot, Potato, Beans , Green peas) - 1 cup ( Finely chopped)
Onions - 2 nos (Finely chopped)
Tomato - 2 nos (Finely chopped)
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Clove, Cinnamon, cardomon, bay leaf - 1 no in each
Jeera - 1 tsp
Rice - 1 cup 
Water - 3 to 4 cups
Salt - To taste

Wash and chop all the vegetables into small pieces and keep aside. You can use either basmati or regular sonamasuri rice, I used the later.

Add 3 tsp of oil or ghee to the pressure cooker. Once heated, add cloves, cardamon  bay leaf, cinnamon, jeera & onions in the same order. Fry the onions till colorless. Then add ginger garlic paste and stir for a min. Add sliced tomatoes and cook they are mashed well. Then add all the spice powders and salt.

Fry for a min and add the chopped vegetables. Add 4 1/2 cups of water, once boiled add the rice. Check the spice level and salt in this stage. If required, increase the spice level and salt. Close the cooker and cook for 10 to 15 min.

Once the pressure is gone, open the lid and check if water is evaporated. If not, keep in low flame and close the lid and keep for few min.

Garnish with coriander if desired.

Serve with raitha or potato roast (Recipe here) to your loved ones.
