Coming to the recipe, am going to post VEGETABLE BIRYANI… Biryani is all time favourite to us, right?? I prepared the biryani with mixed vegetables with homemade spice powder (CCC Powder) and fresh coconut milk. It’s one pot meal, I prepared the biryani in open pot method and it was come out really delicious. This time I prepared the biryani with basmati rice, but our favourite rice for biryani is seeraga samba rice which will give unique taste to the biryani…Check out veg and non-veg biryani with seeraga samba rice.

  • Now pour coconut milk and check for the spicy and salt, if needs add in this stage then keep the flame on high.
  • When it starts boiling add soaked basmati rice and allow it to boil, keep the flame on low when its starts boiling and cover the pan with lid.
  • Let it cook on low flame for 10-15 minutes or the water content goes off. You can check by inserting flat ladle in center of the pan, if the water present on the bottom, let it cook for 2-3 minutes.

  • If CCC powder is not with you no worries, add one 1” cinnamon stick, 2 gloves and 3 cardamom with ginger garlic while grinding for Ginger garlic paste.
  • You can use tin coconut milk, but fresh coconut milk will always good for biryani.
