Vegetable Biryani Recipe

One pot meal always comes handy be it when you want to pack for office or when you want to travel. Especially when you plan for a picnic, I am sure you will want to pack something that is not messy and easy to pack. But at the same time, full of balanced nutrition in your box.
On a regular basis, I plan for one pot meals twice a week. Makes a great way to include all the vegetable in one meal. Finding another recipe that turns out well is a real boon. Enjoy this wonderful blend of spices with vegetables in a rice.

What's even better is you can make this dish with left over rice too.
