Vegetable Briyani

Recipe marathon2# 6th day

My amma use to prepare this briyani & I love the preparation and taste very much. Eventhough she doesn’t use briyani rice it taste’s well. How far, I prepare variety in my receipe. When added added coconut milk it gives delicious taste to briyani.

Ingredients

Basmathi – 1 cup

Soya chunks -15 counts

Coconut milk – 1 cup

Carrot (small) – 1 no

Beans – 75 grams

Potato (small) -1 no

Peas – ½ cup

Onion – 2 nos

Tomato – 3 nos

G.Chilli - 4

Garlic & ginger – 1 tbsn

Coriander leves – 3 stalk

Mint leaves – 5 stalk

Cinnanamon – ½”

Clove - 3 nos

Cardamom – 2 nos

Bay leaves - small

Ani seed (annachi poo) – ½ piece

Chilly powder (kashmiri) – 2 tsp

Ghee – 1 tbs

Oil – 2 tbs

Salt – as per taste

Soak basmathi rice for abt 10 minutes & strain it. Chop all vegetables, keep aside. Grind 1 onion & 1 tomato separately in paste form. Soak soya chunks just for a while & squeeze it.Heat a cooker, pour oil & ghee. Add bay leaves, cardamom, cinnamom,clove, aniseeds after masala fried, add onion & sauté till it becomes golden color. Add ginger & garlic paste, stir it some seconds. Now add chopped vegetables one bye one. Then add mint, coriander leaves. Now add salt, mix it well, let the veggie saute for 2 minutes. Add onion, tomato paste and stir it well. Now add tomato, soya chunks & chilly powder, close it with lid for about 5 minutes. Here add basmathy rice, Coconut milk & 3/4 cup of water, mix it well & keep the flame in simmer. Cook the whole ingredients for about 15 minutes or leave it for 2 whistles. Have this briyani with onion raitha.

Note: Kashmiri chilli gives good color to the briyani. Ratio of the vegetables & rice is 1 rice: 3 vegetable. When adding coconut milk, onion & tomato paste into briyani then, it comes little sticky.
