Subz Dum Biryani ..

Subz Dum Biryani - I agree it's just a fancier name to a relatively simple recipe .. :)

    Cut vegetables like cauliflower, beans, carrots.
    Boil the cut vegetables along with peas and corn until they are soft and tender
    Separately, cook the Basmati Rice
    Make 2 portions of the cooked rice - for one portion use some food color to make it a little colorful

    Saute some onions, green chilies, coriander, Pudina leaves, ginger-garlic along with some 'biryani masala'. You could also add some tomatoes to this.
    If 'Biryani masala' is not available use spices like - pepper, clove, Tej patta and cardamom
    Grind the above sauteed mixture in a grinder to make a fine paste
    Add the boiled vegetables to this masala paste.
    Now layer the masala paste and the colorful rice successively in a large kadai.

    Close it with a firm lid. Place some heavy object on top of the lid - this is our home made 'Dum' .. :)
    Alternatively, some people also seal the lid to the kadai using some 'atta'.
    Cook this on very low flame for about 20 mins and then let it remain for another 20
    Finally the Biryani is ready. Decorate it with fried onions-cashews and some chopped coriander leaves. Serve it with some onion raita ... yummy ... :D
