Minutes and not hours is all that it takes to make scrumptious vegetable biryani using the microwave oven! the clever use of spices beautifully enhances the flavour of the freshly-cooked rice and veggies.
- Combine the cauliflower, potatoes, green peas, onions, coriander, turmeric powder, coriander-cumin seeds powder, garam masala, the ground paste and 3 cups of water in a big microwave-safe bowl, mix well and microwave on high for 8 minutes. Keep aside.
- Combine 1 tbsp of oil and the onions in another microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 5 minutes, or till the onions are crisp and dark brown in colour. Keep aside.
- Take a 175 mm. (7”) diameter deep microwave-safe bowl, spread ½ the fried onions evenly at the base.
- Spread ½ the rice evenly over it.
- Spread all the vegetables evenly over it, top it up with all the remaining rice and onions and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
- Serve immediately garnishes with coriander.
- You can convert this into an accompaniment by omitting the rice and adding 1 ½ cups of coconut milk instead.
- For 2 1/4 cup of cooked rice, soak 3/4 cup of rice in enough water for 30 minutes and drain well. Combine the drained rice along with 1½ cups of hot water in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 8 minutes or till the rice is cooked well. Use as required.
