Simple Veggie Biryani

Hello All!! I know its been long long time almost a couple of years i have blogged and now am back with my blogging work and want to be a regular bloggie ;) . So as of now am feeling like a newbie to the updated version of blogging world and thought of a slow and steady start...and came with a simple yet Yummy recipe which i often make...
This is a very simple and quick recipe. Lets gothrough the Ingredients.
Any rice preferably Basmati - 1 cup
Chopped veggies
(potato, carrot, beans, peas, - 1 cup
cauliflower, Onion)
Butter/oil - 1 tbsp
Cashews - 8-10
Turmeric - a pinch
Salt - as required
Garam masala - 1 tbsp
Jeera powder - 1 tsp
water - 3 cups
Grind to a smooth paste - (1 onion, 1 tomato, elachi, clove, cinnamon - 1 each, coriander leaves, 2-3 green chillies, ginger-garlic paste - 1/2tsp)

Wash the rice, drain and keep aside for 10 mins so that while cooking the grain will be longer.Heat butter/oil in a thick bottemed cooker and add bay leaves cashews and onions, fry till translucent.

Add the paste, turmeric, jeera powder, garam masala fry till oil leaves the edges. Add the veggies and fry for 2- 3 mins and then add 3 cups of water. Cook on high flame till the water boils.

Now add the soaked rice and also add salt, mix well and close with the cooker lid. Take off the whistle. Cook on high face for 5 mins and then simmer for 10 mins and check once in a while till done.

Garma Garam Biryani is Ready!!! Serve hot with any kind Raita. :)
