How to make Hyderabadi veg biryani

  1. Wash rice and boil in excess water. When 2/3 done (al dente) separate the excess water and spread it on a cloth so that there is no moisture nor any steam. Take a pan and heat some ghee.
  2. Add all the dry whole masalas. When it splutters add all the biryani ingredients. Mix well. Add all the vegetables. Assemble the biryani. I make it in the microwave which makes it very easy to cook.
  3. Take microwave dish, add half vegetables and curd. Microwave for 2-3 minutes on high. Take out the dish. Now spread rice on it.
  4. Spread onion and green leaves. Sprinkle saffron water, cover it with cling film.
  5. Microwave for 6-8 minutes. Eat with raita or green chutney and pickle.
