Directions

StepsSteps Info
Step:1
Wash and soak rice for about 15 mins. Cook in an open pot with 3 cups of water until the rice is cooked yet firm. Alternatively, you can pressure cook for one whistle with one cup of water.
Step:2
Grind the ingredients for the spice paste, adding very little water. Meanwhile, cook the chopped vegetables in adequate water until cooked yet firm.
Step:3
Heat oil/ghee and roast the fennel seeds, cardamom, cloves, and bay leaf for about 30 seconds. Then add the onions and fry until it turns pink and translucent.
Step:4
Add the semi-cooked vegetables next and sauté for 2-3 mins. Mix in the ground spice paste and fry until the raw smell leaves it. This shouldn’t take more than 5 mins.
Step:5
Next, add the curd (if using), red chilli powder, turmeric powder, lime juice, and salt, and mix well.
Step:6
Turn off the heat. Add the cooked rice and mix gently until well blended. Serve hot with raita, papad, and pickles.

Note's

A super-quick version of this vegetable biryani recipe would be to do all the frying in the pressure cooker pan (spices, onions, and ground paste). Add raw cut vegetables and washed, soaked rice to this. Pressure cook for one whistle in 1.5 cups of water. This is what I mostly do, but doing it the long way gives you more separated grains of rice and a stronger flavor.
