Vegetable Biryani in electric rice cooker

Vegetable Biryani is a exotic rice based dish prepared with spicy vegetables, basmati rice and Indian spices. I have prepared vegetable biryani in rice cooker. I usually take electric rice cooker with me during my road trips. Instead of searching for veg restaurants in new place, I prepare some simple meals in electric rice cooker. This vegetable Biryani is an easy, quick and healthy meal. It is basically a one pot meal and treat for bachelors. It doesn't involve any grinding and makes an excellent lunch box.
