Easy Briyani with peas gravy!

We always love briyani πŸ™‚ My whole family loves briyani πŸ™‚ Mostly every Sunday’s I make veg/chicken/mutton briyani πŸ™‚

It is a one pot meal easy to make. If we keep all the ingredients ready then we can make briyani very easily.

Today I’m going to share very quick vegetable briyani πŸ™‚ And it can be made in both pressure cooker or electric rice cooker. I always prefer electric one it is very easy to make. You don’t have to worry about the whistles and time.

For better combo/side dishΒ  for this briyani is Green peas masala/gravy.

Let’s move on to the recipe.

Onion – 1 big Chopped lengthwise

Mint leaves – 1 cup finely chopped

Green beans – 1/4 cup chopped

Carrot – 1/4 cup chopped

Potato – half chopped

Cauliflower – 1/2 cup

Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Garam masala powder – 1 teaspoon or more

Fennel seeds – 1 teaspoon

Cloves – 3

Cinnamon stick – 1 or 2

Cardamom – 3

Green chilli – 1 or 2

ginger garlic paste – 1 1/2Β  teaspoon

Basmati rice – 1 cup


Prepare all the ingredients and keep aside.IMG_2513.JPG

In a mixie/blender take mint leaves, green chilli and ginger garlic paste. Fresh ginger and garlic can also be used. Blend everything well and keep aside.IMG_2515.JPG

In heavy bottom pan heat oil/ghee and add the whole spices cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and fennel seeds.IMG_2516.JPG

Then sprinkle garam masala powder and give a mix. Add salt and taste for the spice. If needed we can add some slit green chillies. This recipe use only turmeric and garam masala powder. IMG_2526.JPG

Once everything is coated well add required water. 1 cup of rice : 2 cup of water. Its deponds on the type of rice we using. IMG_2528.JPG

Let the vegetables half cook then add the soaked basmati rice and don’t over mix. Just give a stir.IMG_2539.JPG

I used electric rice cooker. Transfer all the rice masala into rice cooker and tasted for the salt.IMG_2540.JPGIMG_2543.JPG

Once done garnish with coriander leaves. And I served with curd rice, Green peas masala and sweet πŸ™‚IMG_2545.JPGIMG_dd2556.jpg

Healthy version : Replace basmati rice with brown rice or quinoa or oats or barley.

Use spray oil instead of oil. Clarified butter can also be used very little amount.

Replace water with vegetable stock/broth for richer taste.

Happy Cooking πŸ™‚
