Vegetable Biryani

It was 28th July  day for potluck , but I missed to post as I was busy in another work and could not found time to post yesterday  so I am posting now. I was basically paired with Avika's recipe. She made Vegetable fried rice, which already made last month potluck, so I skipped preparing her Vegetable Fried Rice and prepared Vegetable Biryani from her blog and it came very nice.

Please see below procedure

Ingredients :

Basmati Rice 2 cup 
Onion 1 
Ginger garlic Paste 1 tsp
Coriander Powder 1 tsp
Green Chilies 3-4 chopped 
Tomato 1 chopped
Coriander leaves 1/2 cup
Cumin Seeds 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Mixed Vegetable 1 Cup ( Carrot, French Beans, Peas etc)
Garam Masala 1 tsp
Cashew/Groundnuts 5-6
Salt to Taste
Oil 3 Tbsp
Water 4 Cup

Method :

 Soak Rice 1 hour in the cold water. Cut the onion in thin slices. Cut green chilies.
If you are using fresh vegetables,cut them all .Boil in a water for 10 mins. I use frozen , so it took me 3-4 mins in the microwave. Keep aside.
Take a Stock Pan. Add Oil. Once it is heated , add mustard,cumin seeds. Once it is splutters, add GG paste, onion and green chilies. Also add ground nuts/cashew nuts.
Once it is become golden brown colour, add all masalas powders listed in the ingredients and then add chopped tomatoes.
Once it is cooked, add mixed vegetables. Add salt to taste.
Add water in it and cover it boils. Meanwhile, wash the rice again.
Once water bubbles, add rice in it and cover with lid.
After 10 mins, just stir carefully so that rice should not broken into pieces.Slow the heat and let it cook in slow flame. Once it is done, add 1/2 tsp of garam masala and garnish with coriander leaves and cover again for 2 mins.
And serve hot with any Raita...!!
