Haryali Veg Dum Biryani | Vegetable Dum Biryani | Hyderabadi Biryani

Haryali Veg Dum Biryani | Vegetable Dum Biryani | Hyderabadi Biryani - Biryani lovers will love this novel taste of Biryani Green Veg Dum Biryani. Whatever the occasion, this Green Veg Dum Biryani is just perfect. As they say, when you cook Biryani, the aroma has to reach the street corner. That is exactly how it is with this Green Biryani.

I feel this Green Dum Biryani is better than Hyderabadi Dum Biryani as the spices are not as strong as in the Hyderabadi Biryani. It is easy on the stomach. And the Mint paste we add to the Rice gives a very special taste and aroma.

Green Biryani is also made almost the same way as Hyderabadi Dum Biryani but the measurements are different. Even Green Chick Biryani also tastes good. I will share that some other time. Do make this Green Veg Biryani to turn special days into even more special ones.

  1. I have used Basmati Rice. You could use any other Rice but when you Dum the Rice, remember to use 1/4th Cup more Water than you use for Basmati.

  2. Biryani always tastes better with a good brand of Basmati Rice. In case you buy loose Rice, you should use Rice that is older than a year. Only then will the grains stay non-sticky.

  3. Any Rice that you may use, should be soaked for an hour.

To prevent Biryani from sticking to the bottom:

  1. Biryani will not crust in the bottom if you take a thick-bottomed vessel. In case you do not have such vessels, please use a pressure cooker. It has a thick gauge.

  2. whichever vessel you use, put the vessel on a plain Tava while doing Dum. But you need to Dum the Rice for a longer time than normal. That is to say, if I suggest that you have to Dum for 10 minutes, you need to understand it as 15 minutes. When you keep the vessel on a pan, the Rice won't burn and stick to the bottom.

Green Paste:

  1. Green Paste can be a paste of Mint, Green Coriander and Green Chillies and sometimes even some Spinach. I do not like Spinach with Biryani but you could use it, if you like.

Oil – Ghee:

  1. Oil and Ghee should be adequate or the Biryani will seem too dry. Biryani

Some more points:

  1. You could use Capsicum, Mushroom and Paneer to Biryani but I didn't..

  2. I have used frozen Peas so I added them at the very end. If you use fresh Peas, you should fry them with the rest of the vegetables.
