Vegetable Biryani is an all-time favourite rice delicacy, now famous all round the world. It is there on almost every Indian restaurant’s menu, and is also a part of the spread at weddings, parties and other festive occasions. Why, it is one of the first dishes that comes to mind when somebody decides on preparing a rice-based one-dish meal.


A medley of vegetables and rice, cooked with spice powders, and a masaledar paste of coconut, ginger, garlic and green chillies, the Vegetable Biryani has a well-rounded flavour and is satiating too. It is quite easy to make in the microwave oven, and just needs simple accompaniments like curds or raita.

This recipe is inherently flawed. 3 cups of water used in the step 1 makes the consistency of the mixture too runny. When mixed with already cooked rice it ruins the whole thing. Please correct adequately.
