Method :- 


1. Wash and soak basmati rice for half an hour. Drain the rice and keep it aside.

2. Wash then cut cauliflower into florets and put the florets in salted hot water for 4-5 minutes. Drain the water and keep it aside.

3. Sliced onions ( thinly ) & Slit green chillies. Cut carrot and bean into small pieces or as per your choice.

4. I used frozen green peas , if you are going to use fresh one ; then Blanch the green peas and keep it ready.
 if you cut carrot, beans & potato into small pieces then you don’t need to parboil.

Now …

⚫️In a pressure cooker , heat oil + ghee

Then add all the ingredients mentioned in seasoning.Temper them all for a few seconds.

⚫️When it sizzles, add thinly sliced onions and green chilli.

⚫️Sauté until onions turn golden brown in color & add ginger garlic paste ,Sauté until the raw flavor goes.

⚫️Add chopped tomatoes & sauté for some time .

⚫️Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, biryani masala, little salt & milk . 

⚫️Sauté until the tomato becomes mushy.

⚫️Add half of the mint & coriander leaves at this time . 

⚫️Add all the veggies,mix well for 2-3 minutes & add fresh yogurt . 

Let it cook for 3-5 minutes .

⚫️Now,Add soaked and drained basmati rice.

⚫️Add 3 cups of hot water. Add salt needed (remember we have already added a little salt).

Taste the water and adjust spices and salt.

Add if necessary !!

⚫️Add the rest of the mint leaves and coriander leaves & lemon juice .

⚫️Mix well and bring it to boil.

When water starts boiling, reduce the heat to low and close the cooker. Do not put the whistle/weight, instead I inverted a small cup on the vent to prevent steam from escaping.

⚫️Cook on very low heat for 5-6 minutes or until all the water has evaporated , now turn off the heat. Open the cooker after 5-8 minutes and fluff the rice with a fork gently .
Now garnish with chopped coriander leaves & little fried cashews. 

Now it’s ready to serve .

Serve hot !!
