When I saw this recipe, I just had to try it. It looked colorful, flavorful and delicious!
Dum Biryani is one of my favorite food. And I had all the ingredients ready in the fridge. Almost.
Although I planned to use white basmati rice, as the time approached to make it, I decided to swap in Quinoa instead. Here is the list of ingredients I used:
1cup Cauliflower florets
1 cup beans cut into 1in pieces
1 potato cut into 1in pieces
1/2 beetroot sliced
1/2 onion sliced
2-3 bay leaves
1/2tsp cumin seeds
1tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1tsp coriander powder
1 star anise
1small cinnamon stick
1tsp cardamon pods
1-2 tbsp oil
Pinch of saffron
2-3 tbsp milk to soak saffron in
Cilantro and mint chopped, a handful
I followed all the steps as per the original recipe and you can find the step by step directions with excellent photographs here.
It turned out delicious… and I feel good that it is healthy too 🙂 … Enjoy with some raita
