Vegetable Dum Biryani

Muslims are famous for Biryani and Hyderabad Biryani is also very popular in India. I have always wanted to try Biryani with vegetables since I am a Brahmin and was afraid of the taste. I prepared 10days back and it was so spicy and tasty.
Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Onion - 2 nos
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tspn
Carrot - 1/2 no(chopped)
Beans - 10 nos(Chopped to 1.5")
Green Peas - a handfull
Potato - 1no(optional)
Whole masalas - 2nos each(Elakka/Cardamom, Clove/Krambu, Pattai/Cinnamon, star anise small piece)
Red chilli powder - 1 tspn
Garam Masala powder - 1/2 tspn
Thick curd/Plain Yogurt - 1 cup
Oil - 3 tspns
Ghee - 2 tspns
Chopped coriander leaves for garnishing.
 Preparation Method
In a thick bottom pan or Pressure cooker, add oil and ghee, add whole masalas and saute for a minute.
Add thinly sliced onions, ginger garlic paste and a pinch of salt. Saute till onions turn slightly brown.
Add chopped tomato and saute till soft.
Add all vegetables and saute.
Add red chili powder and garam masala powder.
Add curds and mix well.
Add rice, 3 cups of water and salt.
Let it boil well and close it with a thick plate so no vapour goes out. All the flavour is inside. This is Dum.(See Notes)

Check it out after 10mins and mix well. Do this until no water left.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

Vegetable Dum Biryani is ready to serve. Enjoy with onion raitha.

Notes - Dum-  If you wish you can also make a dough using maida and water and seal here.
