Vegetable Biryani Recipe

>>  Sunday, June 26, 2011

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.

Method to prepare:

To make the masala:

Just by changing the vegetables and tweaking the masala we can arrive at different rice varieties which are just as flavorful!

Veg biryani is the most favored one pot meal. I don't usually add tomatoes while grinding. It surely adds some color to the rice.

Looks delicioud Valli. Have you tried by adding 1/4 cup of buttermilk to the vegetables while frying them.It will also taste really great. Try them out if you have not. This version is also very nice.
