Vegetable Biriyani

          Vegetable biriyani is a rich, exotic rice that is made with a lot of vegetables and spices. It is completely different from pulav and fried rice. It contains three main ingredients that is not included in pulav and fried rice-curd, red chilli powder and tomato. Usually the rice and the gravy is cooked separately but in Tamilnadu, they make biriyani in two ways. In one way, the rice, gravy is cooked separately and then they are arranged in layers and cooked in dum. In the second method, it is cooked as one pot meal. Wonder how? Yes, you can make this vegetable biriyani as a one pot meal too. But it differ from pulao as it has curd, tomato which are not used to make pulao.

 I learnt this version from one of my college friends.  Whenever we feel the class is boring or during the free hours we will discuss about making different types of recipes, method of making it etc.,  Though myself and my mom have experimented it in different ways, we found this version easy. Apt recipe to be served during get together and on weekends. There is also another version that i learnt from another friend of mine and will share that recipe too sometime.
