We always love briyani 🙂 My whole family loves briyani 🙂 Mostly every Sunday’s I make veg/chicken/mutton briyani 🙂
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 🙂 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 dish 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 1/2 teaspoon
Basmati rice – 1 cup
Prepare all the ingredients and keep aside.
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.
In heavy bottom pan heat oil/ghee and add the whole spices cloves, cinnamon, cardamom and fennel seeds.
Now add chopped onion and saute until translucent.
Once onion turns light brown add the vegetables and mix well. Sprinkle some turmeric powder mix everything well.
After 5 – 10 minutes add the green paste and mix.
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.
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.
Let the vegetables half cook then add the soaked basmati rice and don’t over mix. Just give a stir.
I used electric rice cooker. Transfer all the rice masala into rice cooker and tasted for the salt.
Once done garnish with coriander leaves. And I served with curd rice, Green peas masala and sweet 🙂
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 🙂
