Vegetarian Biryani

-one small onion
-one small bell pepper (whichever kind you have – multiple kind if you have extra)
-about 3-4 cut top heads of cauliflower (one cup cut)
-1/2 cup of cut green beans
-1/4 cup of sweet peas
-very small potato – chopped
-garlic
-ginger
-paprika
-turmeric
-cumin
-mustered seeds
-3 tbsp of oil
-salt and pepper
-3 green chillies cut
-1 cup of white basmati rice
-1/2 of brown basmati rice
-2 cups of water
-lemon juice

Start boiling/cooking rice in water. Let it cook normally but you don’t want the rice to be mushy – you want it to cook it to separate. let it cool.

put oil in flat frying pan (or wok), let cumin and mustered seeds spluttered. Once done, add all the veggies. Let it cook for few mins and add garlic, ginger, and green chilies. Once all the veggies are cooked (just medium, not well done), add all the masalas (paprika, turmeric, salt, pepper) and add cool rice to it. Mix it well and sprinkle some lemon juice on top (to taste).

Enjoy with some yogurt.
