Vegetable Dum Biryani in Oven

Vegetable Dum Biryani in Oven
Vegetable Dum biryani is a famous spicy rice recipe from India. I am always comfortable in preparing vegetable biryani in pressure cooker or vegetable biryani in electric rice cooker. It makes the process easy and consumes less time. During week-ends, I prepare vegetable dum biryani. Although it involves lot of ingredients and lot of process, the taste is awesome. The taste of biryani prepared by all the three methods is unique in its own way. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Vegetable Dum Biryani.

Tips:
  • Adjust green chillies and chilli powder to your taste.
  • Instead of pressure cooking, cook rice in a big vessel with lots of water. When the rice is half-cooked, strain the water. 
  • Fried onions are easily available in market. Corn flour is added to get crispy onions. Adding corn flour is optional
  • Salt is added in 2 places (to basmati rice and to vegetables). So carefully adjust the salt.
  • Add vegetables of your choice( I have used Carrots, Beans, Green Peas, Cauliflower and Potato). Cut big slices of vegetables.
