About Veg Biryani

Making Vegetable Biryani in a pressure cooker is simple if you know the proper liquid-to-rice-to-vegetable proportions.

Growing up, Sunday was always a biryani day for us, and one of my favourite childhood memories is opening that pressure cooker lid and letting the flavour of biryani fill our entire house.

This pressure cooker vegetable biryani is packed with the goodness of vegetables and soya chunks. Not only that, but the addition of coconut milk makes it very fragrant and delicious. Another variation is to use coconut + poppy seed paste instead, which results in an equally delicious vegetable biryani! Another important aspect of any pressure-cooked rice or biryani is to cook it for one whistle on low heat and then wait until the pressure completely subsides before opening the lid. This allows the vegetable biryani to rest and the grains to fluff up nicely!
