vegetable-biryani-recipe      
   I always wanted to try this way of “ Layered vegetable Biryani” for long time now, in which the basmati rice flavour and the masalas and spices are blended to give a unique taste and flavour. I make this way usually which I already have posted. This is the 2nd or may be third time I am making this way of layering. But the first two times I tried a long time back. So recently remembered and wanted to try. I referred Vah chef’s video and this recipe. This can be made when you have guests at home or if you want to make a special meal Happy.

  12. Repeat this until you finish rice and vegetables. Finish with rice layer. Top with onion and coriander leaves, mint leaves. Close with a lid. Preheat to 210 degree C. (if in pressure cooker, close the lid, with the weight valve and keep in lowest possible flame for 15 mins- if your stove cannot be put in low flame, then you can put the cooker over a dosa pan or keep inside a wide pot with boiling water)
  13. 7-biryani
  14. Bake at a reduced temperature of 140 degrees C for 15- 20 minutes. Mix well and serve hot!

Notes

  • You can add paneer along with vegetables, add all vegetables and lastly add paneer. If your cauliflower is not organic then add it lastly while frying.
  • Fried onion, Mint and coriander adds a nice flavour.
  • You can deep fry the onions.
  • You can make the end part in stove top too. Just layer and keep in lowest possible flame for 10- 14 minutes. You can do in pressure cooker.
  • If you don't have biryani masala, replace with 1 tsp red chilli powder and 1/2 tsp garam masala.
  • The biryani masala will be having main impact in the briyani, if you dont like it, dont add it.

You can top with ghee roasted cashews and you can also garnish with fried bread pieces. Serve with onion raita…

  54. How would you make this in a pressure cooker? Can you describe?

    Also the vegetables did not get cooked in the time mentioned and I thought it would cook when I put it in the oven. But they were still raw. Next time I will cook the vegetables till they are done.

  56. Hi this looks really yummy. I have some doubts. If we cook this in pressure cooker should we put the weight and give whistles? If so how much whistles? You havent mentioned how much cashews we can use? If you can clear these doubts it would really be good.
