Vegetable Biryani

Added on October 23rd, 2012
Found in Mains - recipes, Rice recipes

As with many vegetable curries, this is a good recipe for using all the left-over veg in the cupboard – the bits that you don’t really have enough of to make a meal. Using lots of veg bits and rice makes this a very economical end-of-the-week dish, and would also suit students.

As a variation, you could add lentils to the dish.

Ingredients

  • Mug of Organic  brown basmati rice
  • 750 – 1kg of mixed vegetables (e.g., onion, carrot, potato, peas, peppers, sweetcorn)
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Half teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander and cumin seed
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground green chillies
  • Finely chopped coriander
