  • 01

    Soak rice for 15 minutes. Cook it along with the whole spices and keep aside after draining it.

  • 02

    Fry the onions and keep aside. Similarly, fry all the vegetables and keep aside. Reserve some chopped coriander and mint plus fried onions for the final garnishing just before dum.

  • 03

    After they cool down, mix all the other ingredients along with the vegetables. Final step is to layer it according to your preference. The topmost layer should be that of rice. Add saffron and biryani colour on top along with some chopped coriander and mint plus some fried onions.

    Cover it properly and put it on a medium flame for the first 10 minutes. Lower the flame for the next 20 minutes. Do not open the lid during this. Let all the flavours infuse properly. Just before serving, garnish with fried cashews and almonds. Serve it hot with any raita of your choice.
