Vegetable Biryani

Vegetable Biryani


  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon biryani masala powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 medium potato, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup frozen cut green beans, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup fresh green beans, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup uncooked basmati rice
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 5 fresh curry leaves
  • 1 large onion, cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick strips
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil


    Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat until it shimmers. Cook onion and curry leaves, stirring occasionally, until onion is dark brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Add tomato and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes.

    Meanwhile, soak rice in water to cover for 10 minutes. Drain well. 

    Add beans, carrots, peas, potato, chile powder, biryani masala powder, and salt to onion mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Stir in drained rice and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until water is absorbed, about 30 minutes. Stir in cilantro and let stand, covered, 10 minutes before serving.
