It took me long time to clean, peel and chop vegetables but the outcome is excellent. Though it takes much time you love the taste and definitely you will enjoy it. Each and every vegetables has it’s own taste and benefits.

Ihave added baby corns as a new thing because I have not added baby corns before in any veg biriyani, pulao or in any recipe. It gives a nice crunchy texture. You can also give a try and alternative way of adding baby corns is simply frying them in oil and adding it. But I think instead of frying adding it to cook is more nutritious.

I used India gate basmati rice and in the wrapper it is clearly mentioned to add 2 glass water for each glass of rice. As I cooked vegetable before adding rice nicely in the gravy I have added only the exact amount of water because vegetables take some water for cooking.

I soaked rice in water for half an hour. After chopping all the vegetables I made ginger , garlic and chilly paste. I used a heavy bottomed vessel to give enough space for all the veg to cook. Added onion and spice sauted for 3 mins. Then added vegetables one by one as each vegetables take different time to cook. Started from carrots and beans continued adding potatoes, baby corns, peas. After sauting all the vegetables only I added the ginger garlic chilly paste because it sticks to the pan. Added tomatoes and saute till mushy. Then added mint and coriander leaves, then meal maker. Added chilly powder make not as we already ground chilly paste adjust spice accordingly. I have also added curd.

Further added soaked rice and mixed gently added water and then at last added cardamon and safron milk. One it comes to boil transferred to to a vessel to fit inside a pressure cooker and cooked the biriyani for 3 whistles in medium flame. I served hot with raita.
