Vegetable biryani

Vegetable biryani is a very healthy dish. It is full of nutrition in the form of vegetables. It is ideal to have it with any paneer (cottage cheese) curry since it completes the nutrition triangle, the fibre from the vegetables + the carbs from the rice + the protein from the paneer. Here we have depicted the pressure cooker style of cooking. Mrs.Jhansi cooked this mildly spicy. Other items that vegetable biryani is good with are onion raitha, aaloo kurma, aaloo tomato kurma and chick peas curry. Here are the step by step instructions.
