    Biryani is one of my favorite one meals. when it comes to vegetable biryani, it is always Vegetable Pulao or Vegetable Bagara. But try this its full of favours.


    Serve for 2

    1 cup Basmati rice
    1 potato
    1 onion
    1 carrot
    1 capsicum
    1/2 bowl corns
    1.2 bowl peas
    2 tomatoes
    a handful of french beans
    2 tablespoons of curd
    1/4 cup poppy seeds
    1 teaspoon of minced fresh ginger
    2 cloves of minced garlic
    1 teaspoon of garam masala
    3 green chillies
    1 teaspoon of red chili powder
    Oil, salt to taste
    1 tablespoon of ghee or butter
    A pinch of saffron, soaked in a small cup of warm milk
    1/2 cup chopped coriander leaves and mint


    Wash the basmati rice , soak atleast for 15 min and cook pouring 2 cups of water, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and a few drops of ghee until done. Remove and keep aside.

    In a pan, brown the onions and keep aside.

    In a pan heat oil and add the ginger, garlic and green chillies and saute for a minute. Add a tablespoon of curd and keep stirring until it evaporates, repeat with another tablespoon, when the water evaporates completely, add the vegetables except onions, salt and stir and cook covered for atleast 10 minutes.

    Crush the poppy seeds and add to the vegetables. Add garam masala, chili powder , mix and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

    In a greased baking dish layer the rice first and then add the vegetable curry and then add the rice. if the quanitity is more than you can add more layers. I could just get to 3 layers.

    Preheat the oven at 200C and meanwhile garnish the layers of rice and curry with coriander , mint and cashews if you want. Also add the saffron milk and ghee to it. Cover with an aluminium foil and on top of it place a plate or any cover which is heavy and bake for a good 30 minutes. Some of the rice gets crispy and brown.

    If you are to using oven than put on gas for about 20 min.

    Once out of the oven, garnish with browned onions and serve hot with raitha
