Vegetable Biryani

Vegetable Biryani  and Raita

What do you do when you are home alone on a weekend with no plans? You scavenge through the kitchen and gather all the ingredients you can and make a biryani out of it!

So, that is exactly what I did today and here’s my recipe for the same.



  • 2 cups biryani rice
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup french beans
  • 1/2 cup sweet corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup carrots
  • 1 cup soya nuggets
  • 1 spoon salt
  • 1 spoon jeera
  • 1/2 spoon red chilli powder
  • 1/2 spoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 spoon turmeric
  • 1 spoon biryani masala
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 4 peeled garlic pods
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 cup curd

For masala:

  • Grind onion, tomatoes, garlic, green chillies with a cup of curd and make a fine paste



  • Boil 2 cups of rice in 4 cups of water, add 1 spoon salt in it and cook and keep aside
  • In a pan, add oil and heat
  • Add jeera and as it crackles add the paste to it
  • Add turmeric, red chilli powder, coriander powder and biryani masala
  • Mix it all together and keep stirring till oil starts separating from the masala
  • Once the masala is finely prepared, add all the vegetables and soya nuggets
  • Let it cook for 10 minutes on simmered heat
  • Once cooked, mix the pre-cooked rice and the masala
  • Serve in a bowl with onion-cucumber raita and fried onions


Happy weekend y’all! 🙂
