Ingredients

Directions

Step 1

Grind garlic, ginger, one-fourth of the onion & green chillies together with a little amount of water & keep aside.

Step 2

Wash the rice & soak it in the water & keep aside.

Step 3

Heat oil & ghee/butter in a pan.

Step 4

Add the remaining onion & fry them until it turns to golden brown.

Step 5

Add the spices to them & saute for 2 mins.

Step 6

Add the ground paste & fry for 5 mins.

Step 7

Add the tomatoes, turmeric powder, salt, garam masala, biriyani masala, royal curry/chilly powder to it & cook for 5 mins on low flame.

Step 8

Add all the vegetables, bell peppers, mushrooms & close the lid & cook for 5 - 10 mins.

Step 9

Drain the water from the rice & add to them & stir for 2 - 3 mins.

Step 10

Add lime juice & yoghurt to it & stir well.

Step 11

Add 5 cups (same 1:2 ratio of rice & water) of water to it & close the lid.

Step 12

Cook until the rice is done in the stove or in the oven.

Step 13

:- Oven cooking tastes better.

Step 14

Finally, add the coriander leaves for better flavour.

Step 15

:- Serve with mint or onion flavoured yoghurt.

Step 16

:- It is not necessary to use all the spices & masala powders. We can use what we have. But for perfect Indian taste, the specified things would be better. Garlic-ginger-chillies-onion paste is the magic & we can very well feel that, when we add them.
