This vegetable-packed biryani is a one-pot dish that’s aromatic, flavorful and super tasty.
You are going to love this vegetarian biryani recipe because it is full of flavor. The aroma will have your mouth watering as it cooks! It’s loaded with veggies like: carrots, bell pepper, potatoes, corn and peas. It’s a vegan recipe too as long as you omit the ghee-coated cashews and raisins.
So… I think it’s official. I have a biryani problem.
I already have several different types of biryani on my blog and you can expect several more varieties to come soon. I have so many biryani recipe ideas floating around in my head. And by floating, I mean dancing. All of these biryani ideas are basically doing bhangra in my mind. Biryani Bhangra.💃🏽 hoi! bruahhh!
Anyway… the point is that we have been eating biryani at least once a week lately (Biryani Fridays!) and I can’t wait to eventually share all of my biryani recipes with you.
This veggie dish is normally reserved for special occasions but thanks to the instant pot, it’s now simple enough to make on a busy weeknight. It’s easy and also impressive so this dish works for dinner parties too. In fact, if you’re looking for a fancy vegetarian recipe to serve your guests then look no further. Okay actually do consider making my vegetable korma too. You can serve both of these at a dinner party and your vegetarian/vegan friends will love you forever!
One last thing… when you’re making biryani, you should be using good biryani rice. I highly recommend using this brand of basmati rice in this dish and in all of my rice dishes. I love the extra long grains and in my opinion, no other basmati rice compares to it. I’m always open to learning about new varieties/brands though so leave a comment if there’s another one you prefer!
Enjoy this dish! And if you like it, be sure to check out one of my other biryani recipes 🙂
