vegetable biryani pressure cooker method /veg biriyani recipeYou will never miss this recipe,its very popular celebrity lunch item . I mean it by saying that it is celebrity item because it is “that” popular. In most functions they will almost fix this as a principle item in their functional menu. Its a usual trademark common variety rice item here in South India.Mostly for this they usually use basmati rice . But ,here I have used seeraga samba rice.vegetable biryani pressure cooker method /veg biriyani recipeThis seeraga samba is a personal favourite for me because of its unique flavour.You can always use basmati rice instead of seeraga samba. You can use any vegetable that is available but not all veggies can be used. I have used ginger garlic paste as I was having it handy.But,you can use chopped ginger and garlic for grinding. After finishing the process lastly fluff up the rice with a fork.Lastly add few drops of ghee and mix for more flavour,if required.This vegetable biryani pressure cooker method is one of the easiest version to do.
