Vegetarian Kerala Biryani

Kerala Vegetable Biryani (Vegetarian Recipe)

Blogging Marathon# 48: Week 3/ Day 1 Theme: Biryani of different Styles Dish: Kerala Vegetable Biryani The theme for this week’s blogging marathon is one of my favorite. My love for biryanis has made me try quite a few different varieties already. So when Valli had Biryani of different styles as one of the themes for this month’s marathon, I knew this was my chance to try 3 more delicious biryanis and add them to my repertoire. This Kerala Vegetable Biryani from Veg Recipes of India has been on my to-make list for quite a while now. This is a…

Shahi Biryani

I have started to enjoy making Biryanis, both to entertain and also for Sunday lunches. You can tell from the increase in the biryani recipes on the blog in the recent past. Once the rice and spiced veggies on done, then all is left to do is the layering part which is my favorite thing to do. The layered look is very pretty on the plate too. Also it is easy to multiply the ingredients and make them for a crowd. I’m on the look out for new and interesting biryani recipes and when I saw this being made on…

Veg Dum Biryani (Hyderabadi Vegetable Dum Biryani)

Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter V Theme: A-Z Vegetarian Dishes of Andhra Pradesh Dish: Veg Dum Biryani (Hyderabadi Vegetable Dum Biryani) Letter V stands for my all time favorite vegetable Vankaya (brinjal/ eggplant), but I stopped myself from making yet another vankaya recipe (I already posted 4 recipes with eggplant in this month). So I made yet another favorite of mine, Vegetable Dum ka Biryani.

Qabooli Biryani (Hyderabadi Chana dal Biryani)

Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter Q Theme: A-Z Dishes from Andhra Pradesh Dish: Q for Qabooli Biryani (Hyderabadi Chana dal Biryani) Letter Q stands for Qubani (apricots). Qubani ka Meetha is a very famous Hyderabadi dessert that is made with dried apricots that are soaked and then cooked with sugar and drizzled with cream. I wanted to make it, but couldn’t find good quality apricots. So I made Qabooli instead. Qabooli is biryani made with spicy chana dal (split pea lentil) and layered with basmati rice. I used black chana/ chickpeas instead and it turned out quite tasty. This is a…

Dal Biryani

It’s been a while that I sent an entry to Susan @ Well Seasoned Cook’s famous My Legume Love Affair (MLLA) event. This month’s edition is being hosted by lovely Nupur @ One Hot Stove. I love legumes and they are integral part of my cooking. My 5 year old LOVES dal chawal and I’m very glad that I can sneak in any veggie in to a dal and he’ll eat it without complaining. So much for little victories 🙂 This Dal Biryani recipe is adapted from one of the Telugu cooking shows that I recently watched. I really loved…

Rajasthani Gatte ki Biryani

Blogging Marathon: Week 2/ Day 5 Theme: Traditional Dishes Dish: Rajasthani Gatte ki Biryani I have been planning to make this dish for over a year. I wanted to make it for BM# 12 when Valli had a theme for Rajasthani dishes. It was when BM was for 7 days and I actually made 4-5 dishes, but had to opt out of the marathon because I started having some serious morning sickness in my initial stages of pregnancy. So finally got to make it for this week’s “traditional’ dishes.
