Veg darshini Biryani - Bengalru style Vegetable biryani - Biryani with fresh spices - Onepot meals - Rice recipes - Lunch box recipes

I love to try different Vegetable biryanis. Since my son is not a big fan of spices, most of the time I use whole spices for seasoning but when grinding I use garam masala. However I have seen this biryani sometime ago in one food show. I wanted to try it out as I knew for sure it would taste good (fresh spice for sure will give a nice flavour right?) I was looking for the right time to try. . Fresh spices gave a nice flavour and aroma.
