The name Biryani itself an epic and tells so many stories of different regions, cultures and cuisines. Biryani is one of the most popular one pot meals in Asia. Every region has their own style to prepare this dish. There are many types of biryanis around the world like Hyderabadi Biryani, Kolkata Biryani, Awadhi Biryani, Kacchi Biryani, Sindhi Biryani, Thai Biryani, Srilankan Biryani, Iraqi Biryani, Singapore Biryani, Kashmiri Biryani and many more.

Biryani is one of the most versatile rice dishes I have ever seen in my life. It can get prepared in multiple ways using different key ingredients. It can be Chicken Biryani, Mutton Biryani, Beef Biryani, Pork Biryani, Lamb Biryani, Paneer Biryani or Vegetable Biryani, Egg Biryani and more. I can’t finish it on count.

It can get prepared in Tawa, in Handi, in pressure cooker or in Kadai. Few people prepare it in Dum process, whereas few others prefer to prepare it by stir fry. Some people also prepare it by combining both the processes. When prepared properly all of these varieties has its own mouth-watering taste.

In this recipe, I have prepared Vegetable Dum Biryani in Kadai. To make the preparation easy I have used few of my own steps. I hope it is going to help you to prepare this dish. Normally, in preparation of Vegetable Dum Biryani, rice gets cooked about 70% to 75% in a different utensil. I think it sometimes becomes very confusing for someone to understand when rice has reached level. As a result of this, sometimes either rice gets overcooked or undercooked.

To overcome from this trouble, I have come up with a new idea. I have not taken any separate utensil to cook the rice. I have explained all the steps in the “Method” section of my recipe. If you follow the steps properly then you will get fluffy rice with tender vegetables in the Biryani.

In this recipe, I have used few of my favourite vegetables. I have used Potatoes, Carrots, Bell Peppers, Cauliflower and Peas in this preparation. You can add some more vegetables or remove some of them as per your taste and preference.

Preparing Vegetable Dum Biryani is a slow process of cooking. But it is completely worth to spend time on it because the outcome of the hard work tastes heavenly. You can prepare Instant Vegetable Biryani in pressure cooker and it gets ready within half an hour. It tastes good but tastes completely different from Vegetable Dum Biryani. I will share that recipe too very soon with you.

One of the key ingredients to prepare a Vegetable Dum Biryani is fried Onions. To reduce both time and effort, I have used ready-made fried Onions which I purchased from the supermarket. Even homemade fried Onions work same for this preparation. But you would need to put some extra effort for this.

In Vegetable Dum Biryani, rice is completely overloaded with the flavours of spices and Ghee. At the same time, it has the goodness of vegetables. It does not require any other companion to complete the meal. Just a piece of Lemon and Onion takes the taste of the dish to the seventh sky.
