White Veg Biryani - Pleasant for the eyes and taste-buds

White Veg Biryani - Pleasant for the eyes and tastebuds

This white veg biryani i got it from a food magazine. i am generally not much interested in veg biryani. if the side is potato chips, then iam okay with veg biryani. but this white biryani was with a little twist.. coconut milk is one of the ingredient !

any rice or biryani or birinji made with coconut milk.. i always have a crush for it. in this recipe, the water is not totally replaced with coconut milk, but just little will do.
as always, i add more vegetables. all finely chopped. beautiful red and green vegetables in white pearly rice.

in this veg biryani, i add saunf.. which gives this awesome mild flavour to this biryani which makes you go for another serving. 

Let's make it veggiee....



  • basmathi rice - 2 cups
  • green beans, carrot, potato and peas - together - 1 and 1/2 cup
  • ginger - 1 piece
  • garlic - 5 cloves
  • green chillies - 4
