Vegetable Biryani originated in Persia and traveled to India through Mughals. In India vegetable biryani is widely loved and relished by all.

Vegetable biryani is prepared with basmati rice and lots of nutritious vegetables adding to that spicy masala gravy makes the dish Yummilicious.

I like to add double beans and peas a lot during the season as it adds a balanced fiber and protein to my diet. This type of preparation is cooked mostly in south Indian states.

I never opt for vegetable biryani outside. However, in most veg restaurants it is one of the must try dishes.

I enjoy making this recipe by myself and love to share it with you all. Hope you enjoy preparing it as well.
