Palak Biriyani

11 Apr

So this is a total throw-all-your-bits and bobs-in-the-pot kind of recipe. Basically, I had some beans, some carrot, half a capsicum and some mushrooms lying around, so I decided to put it all in the biriyani and it turned out quite awesome.

What you need:

1/2 tin chopped Spinach
1 cup yoghurt
1 inch cinnamon
2-3 cloves
2-3 cardamom pods
4-5 pepper corns
1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp biriyani masala
2 cups rice
3-4 tbsp oil
chilli powder to raste
salt to taste
any/all vegetables lying about, chopped

What to do:

Boil rice and keep aside.

In a deep vessel, heat up the oil. Once hot, add the whole spices, onions and ginger garlic paste. Saute until the onions are golden brown.

Now add the spinach and saute till the flavours nicely combine. Now add the yoghurt and give it a stir.

Add vegetables, the biriyani masala and cook on medium flame until the vegetables are cooked.

Add to this rice and stir until everything is mixed properly. Now add salt. You’re ready to go!

For garnish, you can fry onion slices until crispy brown and sprinkle them on top.
