Vegetable Rice/ vegetable biryani/ vegetable pulao

Vegetable rice is a healthy and delicious recipe. Vegetable rice made with mixed vegetables and spices. A very simple and easy pulao recipe. It goes well with dahi, pickle, papads and raitha. There are lots of things, but that style I am using I easy and simple. Here I am not using tomato. Vegetables of your choice, here I use carrot, potato, onions, green peas and cauliflower. Potato gives nice flavors to biryani. Cut cauliflower into small size. I prefer sauté vegetables not boiled vegetables. We can use half tbsp ginger garlic paste. Sauté the vegetables takes around 5 to 6 minutes not more than that. After sauté the vegetables, we can add yogurt in this recipe it gives nice flavors to the biryani. Sauté is the first and most important part of the biryani. We can use fried onions. That’s called brown onions. Brown onion looks fantastic and tastes good. We add fried onions in vegetable sauté. Vegetable rice tastes so yummy my family is a big fan of vegetable rice. Dry fruits gives it a rich and fantastic tastes.
