Vegan Indian Biryani

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Biryani is a typical dish which comes from Mughlai cuisine. It is a recipe which is made out of vegetables and rice. It is commonly consumed in India. Today I am going to share one of my favorite versions of vegetable Biryani. I am going to prepare this dish in Indian style, by adding some authentic spices which will give this dish a traditional and spicy flavor. It is full of vegetables and healthy nutrients, I am using my favorite vegetables and you can customize it by using your favorite veggies. Let’s get started!


• 3 cups boiled brown rice

• 2 onions finely chopped

• 3 cups tomatoes finely chopped

• 1 carrot boiled and diced

• 2 cups boiled French beans

• 1 tablespoon cumin seeds

• ½ teaspoon garlic paste

• ½ Teaspoon ginger paste

• 1 tablespoon red chili paste

• 1 tablespoon coriander powder

• 1 teaspoon turmeric powder

• 1 tablespoon curry paste [optional]

• Chopped cilantro

• Salt to taste

• Oil to cook

STEP 1: Heat some oil in pan, then add the cumin seeds, chopped onions and let the onions cook for at least 5 minutes until the color turns golden brown.

STEP 2: When the onions are cooked properly, you can add the carrot and French beans. Let them cook for another 5 minutes. You can cover the pan for 5 minutes to let the vegetables cook thoroughly.

STEP 3: Now that the vegetables are cooked properly, add the ginger and garlic paste to the vegetable mixture.

STEP 4: Next, add the coriander powder, turmeric powder, red curry paste, and red chili paste. Then add the salt to taste and mix it well. 

STEP 5: Now add the tomato puree and mix well and let the mixture cook for a good 5 minutes.

STEP 6: Now that we have the mixture ready, we can begin with adding the rice.

STEP 7: Take another container and start adding the layers now. At the bottom of the container, add a layer of rice. Then on top of that layer add a layer of vegetables. Repeat/

STEP 8: Cover the lid of the container and let the vegetable Biryani cook for 5-7 minutes.

*You can garnish the Biryani with chopped cilantro and serve it piping hot! This dish can also be enjoyed with any vegetable curry or lentil curry. I prefer having Biryani with my favorite Indian vegetable curry. Enjoy!
