How i Made this Vegetable Biryani?

My version of Vegetable biryani is always made with loads of Vegetables and less rice. As I told you Earlier this is our cook recipe. He mentioned for 1 cup of rice use 250g grams for mixed vegetables which is very little for me. But I have added panner and soya chunks which are healthier versions too. The secret of this Vegetable biryani is Coconut is ground with whole spices and some other spices, try to take the ingredients as mentioned increase or decrease in ingredients, the taste may differ. Last but not least, Follow each and Every Procedure carefully to get the exact taste of Kalyana Biryani.

Take 4 to 6 green chilies, 50g ginger, 1 tsp fennel seeds, 2-inch cinnamon, 4-5 cloves, 3 cardamoms, ½ cup freshly coconut, these are ingredients required to make Kalyana Biryani. If you want to add garlic you can add about 25g not more than that. This masala measurement is for 2 cups of rice, if you add more rice just increase the quantity accordingly.

Step by Step Kalyana Biryani Recipe with Tips:

Step: 1 Take 4 to 6 green chilies(there is no Chili powder for this biryani so according to your spice level adjust chili quantity), 50g ginger, 1 tsp fennel seeds, 2-inch cinnamon, 4-5 cloves, 3 cardamoms, ½ cup coconut and grind it to a fine paste along with 1/2 cup of water. Make sure that the ground paste is smooth and creamy.

Heat a pan with 1 tbsp oil + 1 tbsp ghee(don’t use only or ghee always ghee and oil combination gives a nice flavor to biryani), add paneer(paneer is not in the recipe, you can skip too), roast slightly, and remove it on a plate(don’t roast it to golden paneer will turn rubbery), keep aside. 

Step: 2 Into the same pan add whole spices(cinnamon, cloves, star anise, cardamom), vegetables of your choice, ground coconut paste, 1.5 tsp salt. Saute well. Cover and cook till the vegetables become soft and oil separates. This is an important step, you must cook till the oil is separated otherwise you will feel the raw smell of the biryani.

Step: 3 Add 1 tbsp lemon juice, 2 cups of rice(soak rice for 30 mins, drain water and then add it), and 3 & ¾ cups of water, mix well. There is no curd in this biryani so add lemon juice. Cover and Cook for 6 to 8 mins or till the rice is done!

Add 1 tsp ghee finally to fluff up the rice, garnish with coriander leaves, top the paneer and serve. That’s it, simple Veg Pulao is ready to serve!


  1. Don’t Soak the rice for more than 30 mins, rice will turn sticky.
  2. masal paste is the highlight of the dish dont use strore bough masala powder.
  3. you can use basmati rice, or seeraga samba rice, must try with seraga samba rice.
