Vegetable Biryani



Ingredients:

Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Onions - 2
Vegetables - Any of your choice (Peas, carrot, beans, capsicum, cauliflower, etc).
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Garlic - 3 flakes
Tomato - 1
Red chillie powder - 1/2 tsp (adjust according to taste).
Bay leaf
Oil
Salt to taste
Garam masala pieces (Cinnamon, cloves, elaichi)

Preparation:

Cut carrot, beans and capsicum into thin, long pieces.  Dice onions into long, thin pieces.  Grind the ginger and garlic together and keep side.



Heat oil in a kadai and add garam masala pieces and bay leaf.  Add the onions and fry till onions become brown and crisp.  Add ginger and garlic paste and fry till good smell comes.  Add the tomatoes and fry for a few minutes.  Then add vegetables and fry them for sometime.  Once the vegetables are half cooked, add red chillie powder and salt and fry for a few minutes and close it with a lid.  If required, sprinkle little bit of water so that vegetables don't stick to the bottom.  Add this to boiled rice and mix thoroughly and serve.



**for fried rice kind of consistency, instead of adding to boiled rice and mixing it, add raw rice soaked for 10 minutes to the fried vegetables and keep frying for a few minutes and put all in a cooker and keep till 2 whistles.
**Add ghee when mixing the fried vegetables to the boiled rice for a good flavor.
