How to make Vegetable Dum Biryani

  1. Wash rice and leave it to soak in water for 30 minutes.
  2. Add one and half tsp spoon oil in wok and stir fry each veggie separately for a min or two and keep aside in a bowl.
  3. Add all the items under Ingredients to the stir fried veggies, mix well and keep aside for 30 minutes.
  4. Now remove the Cauliflower pieces and put the whole mixture in a dish and cook till veggies are three fourths done and then add cauliflower florets and cook till done. Keep aside
  5. In a separate dish boil sufficient water along with salt and whole garam masala mentioned under Rice. After the water starts boiling add rice and drain it after its 3/4th cooked in a sieve.
  6. Now take a lagan grease it with ghee then layer with half rice then add the veggies mixture then add rest of the rice.
  7. Use a spoon and make four holes by digging the spoon till it reaches end of the vessel. Now add everything under Garnish.
  8. Seal the lagan with aluminum foil and close the lid. Put some weight on the lid and cook on high flame for 5 min and on sim for 10 min and turn off the flame. Leave the dish for 15 min and then mix carefully, its ready to serve.
My Tip: • India gate classic basmati rice makes the best biryani. • Use the same oil which you used to fry the onions in the recipe. • Making the holes in the biryani layering is very important as the steam comes up and makes the biryani rice very good!! • If you want you can also use kewra water in garnish. • Oil for stir frying veggies is not mentioned under ingredients.
