Vegetable Biryani | Restuarant Style!

Vegetable Biryani is one main dish we order at Restuarants. But I have been ordering the same dish in different restuarants, but it tastes the same.

So today I wanted to eat Vegetable Biryani and my son was asking me to take him to the restuarant, but no time to go to restuarant on weekdays. Then I thought of trying at home. It was delicious and perfect. He said super ma!

Basmati Rice - 3 cups
Water - 5 cups
Oinon - 1no
Carrot - 1/2 no .
Beans - 6 nos
Brocolli - few florets
Cauliflower- few florets
Paneer cubes - few pieces
Green Peas - handfull
Spices - 2 nos each cloves/lavang, cinammon/pattai,bay leaf- 1 no, cardamom/Elaichi -2 nos.
Mint/Pudina - handfull
Oil - 2 tablespoons
Butter/ghee - 1/2 tablespoon(Optional)
Curds - 1 tablespoon
Rose water - 1/2 tspn

Masala powders
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tspn
Red colour - a pinch
Garam Masala - 1/2 tspn
Turmeric - 1/4 tspn
Kasoori Methi - 1/2 tspn

Preparation method
Wash, rinse and soak basmati rice in 5 cups of water.
Cut all veggies into small medium pieces and put them in water.
Heat a pressure cooker, add oil/ghee, spieces, onion, salt and fry them till brown. Add pudina leaves and saute them. Add the vegetables and saute them.Add paneer and saute.
Add all masala powders, crush kasoori methi and saute for few minutes.
Then add basmati rice and saute. Add curds. Add the water.
Add salt.
Close a lid and keep in medium flame.
This rice will be ready in 15mins. Keep checking. If slightly the bottom rice is burnt then the taste is good. Off the stove. Add the rose water and mix well.

Serve it with this Restuarant style raitha or any choice of gravy.
