Vegetable biryani with masala powder - Veg masala Biryani - Rice recipes - Lunch box

During one of my holiday trips I had tasted Veg briyani and it was simple yet nice. No coconut or nuts and it was purely all the masalas (without typical Biryani masala like Cardamom, Cinnamon etc..) I kind of like it. So I wanted to try and recreate it at home. It came out pretty good. As it is without usual biryani masala my kids liked it too. I have made it with cooked Bastmati rice. You can add any rice or millets.
