Vegetable Briyani

All in one!!! A real treat for the eyes, nose and tongue :)


Rice - 1 cup
Coconut milk - 2.5 cup

Garlic - 1 full
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Green chillies - 6

Mixed vegetables (carrot, beetroot, beans, potato, piece etc) - 1 cup
Salt - to taste


Cinamon (pattai) - small piece

Ani seed (sombu) - 1 tsp
Clove(Lavangam) - 3
Brinji leaf - 1
Cadamom(Elachi) - 2


Powder the cinamon, ani seed and cadamom finely and keep it aside. Grind ginger and garlic together and keep it aside. For best results wash and soak the rice in water for ten min before making it.

Now take a pressure pan and add a tbspn of oil. Add the masala powder, cloves and brinji leaf. Now add ginger garlic paste and green chillies and fry till you count ten in reverse order:) . Now add all the diced vegetables and salt and fry for 5 min. Now drain the rice and add it to the mixture. Fry again for 3 min. Now pour coconut water and close the pan and let it cook for 2 whistles. You can garnish it finally with roasted bread and cashews. Vegetable briyani is ready :) Happy eating :)

Serve it hot with raitha(onion and cucumber). This quantity would serve 4 ppl.
