Recipe Notes for Veg Dum Biryani

Let’s see how to cook vegetable dum biryani.

Firstly we need to dice the onions

Fry till they turn brown.

Cut vegetables into bigger sized pieces.

Here I used capsicum, potato, green peas, cauliflower, beans and carrot.

Wash, soak basmathi rice for 1/2 hour.

Marination of Vegetables

Vegetables need to be marinated first.

To a bowl, add 1 cup curd.

Add 2 teaspoons chilli powder, 2 teaspoons coriander seeds powder, 1 teaspoon cumin seeds powder, 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt


Add diced vegetables


Add 1/2 cup coriander leaves, 1/2 cup mint leaves, half of fried onions


Add shallow fried paneer pieces


Paneer could be fried or used as it is.

Add fried cashew nuts, 2 tablespoons oil


Add 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste


Close lid

Marinate for 15-20 minutes.

Rice Preparation

Prepare rice in the meantime.

Fill a pan more than half with water.

Then add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon oil, whole garam masala- 2 bay leaves, 6 cloves, 4 cardamoms, 2-3 small cinnamon sticks and 1/2 teaspoon shahjeera

Close lid and boil water.

Let the rice cook only up to 70 percent.

Move the rice to a strainer.

Biryani Preparation

Take a pan with thick base.

Add 2 tablespoons clarified butter (ghee)

Spread it.

Mix marinated vegetables

Spread it evenly on the base.

Add 1/2 cup water to the bowl

Add this to the vegetables.

Layer the boiled rice.

If the quantity is more, vegetables and rice could be layered consecutively in multiple layers.

Add rest of the mint leaves, coriander leaves, fried onions

Spread it evenly.

Add 2 tablespoons clarified butter (ghee)

Put the pan on stove.

Put a heavy lid on so that the water vapour doesn’t escape.

Close off holes if any using wheat dough.

If the lid isn’t heavy enough, put a weight on the lid.

Cook for 10 minutes on high flame.

Place a flat pan under the biryani pan

Cook for 10 minutes on high flame.
