Vegetable Biryani

23 Apr

This came out really well. I largely followed what was given here with a few largely Mom inspired modifications ;). You can follow the recipe on the main link; but I’ll write down the modifications separately.

1. Boil the cauliflower separately for 3-4 minutes and throw the remaining water away. This is to remove the dirt between the cauliflower florets.

2. Cut the carrot, beans,green capsicum and onions into longish strips, instead of small pieces.

3. Boil the carrot,beans and peas in a pressure cooker for some 10 minutes to soften them up.

4. Fry the onions and capsicum separately; you don’t need to boil those as they cook very fast. Midway through frying the onions and capsicum, add the boiled veggies too.

5. Add all the various pastes and masalas in the order given on the link; that’s what I followed as well.

6. Add the yoghurt right at the end; and ensure that you don’t heat the vessel for too long after mixing the rice-veggie combo with the yoghurt; it’ll break the curd up and make it very watery.

7. Serve with a bowl of curd/raita and maybe a few papads or chips. Don’t need to make a separate side dish; this is quite heavy as it is 🙂
