Quick Tasty Biryani


Category : , , ,

Having two young kids at home, it kind of gets challenging to spend more time in the kitchen! I had to throw in something really quick in less than 10 min one night. So came up with this quick recipe. It turned out great!

1) Basmathi rice - 1.5 cups
2) Frozen peas - 1/2 cup
3) Meal maker/ Soya chunks - few (optional). Soak in boiling water for 5 min.
4) Garam masala whole spices (cinnamon, cardomon, cloves, bay leaves)
5) Ginger Garlic Paste.
6) Salt.

To Grind
1) Almonds - 2 tablespoons
2) Green Chilli - 3
3) Mint leaves - few
4) Corriander leaves/Cilantro - few.

Grind the above to a smooth paste. Almonds are great substitute for coconut and the Biryani would taste much better than using coconut!

Soak the basmathi rice for atleast 20 minutes. In a cooking pan, add oil then the garam masala spices and fry well. Then add ginger garlic paste and cook until the raw smell goes away. Now add the frozen peas and the soaked, drained rice and fry well. Add the grinded paste with 3 cups of water (water to rice ratio is 2:1). Add salt and the cooked soya chunks. Close the lid and cook until rice is cooked.

Serve with Onion Raitha!
