This vegetarian biryani uses loads of chopped vegetables such as carrots, french beans and potatoes to prepare the mixture that is layered between rice flavoured with whole garam masalas.

You could remove the garam masalas from the rice before layering if required. Topping this biryani with some chopped dry fruits before serving would enhance its appearance and taste.

Enjoy this biryani with a bowl of curds or a raita and papad.

Biryanis also make a hearty one-dish meal .You can also try other biryanis like Hyderabadi Sofiyani Biryani or Minty Paneer Biryani .

This is my fav.rice item. Cooked lot of times with little addition of fresh malai and once tried with fresh fruits cubes,orange,grapes,cherry this gives shahi flavour.

This one I tried last Sunday from my Mughlai Khana book, It turned out so delicious, only change i made was I added 1/4 cup of curd in the vegetables while cooking and garnished final dish with golden brown fried onions.. it was really a show stopper for my guests.. thanks tarlaji..
