Hello Guys,
This is my first post on my food blog and I am really damn excited about it. The pictures used may not be of that good quality but I intend to improve myself with each post. Looking forward to your valuable comments and suggestions. Please show some love to my blog.
My love for Biriyani started when I visited City of Nawabs that is Hyderabad couple of years back. I had few delectable dishes like Hyderabadi Dum Biriyani, Chicken curry  at Alpha Hotel Near the old Station.I have huge liking towards prawns, I love having it in any kind of preparation.So I thought to make biryani this time with prawns.So here is the recipe.

You will need:
-Garam Masala ( Cinnamon, Cardamom, Pepper, Cloves.)
-1 to 2 Bay leaves
-2 Red Chillies
-1 Tbsp of Cashew and kismis.
-Shredded Vegetables( Potato, Carrot, French beans, Green peas, Cauliflower)
-Medium Sized Prawns- 12 to 15
-Half Cup of Yoghurt.
-Ghee for taste.
-Everest Biriyani Masala- 1 tablespoon.
-Home made rose water.
-Kewra water- optional
-2 Glassful of Basmati rice.
-2 Large shredded onions.
-Few Saffron Strands

Method :
1-In a pressure cooker add 500 ml of water, basmati rice, bit of ghee , garam masala and salt. Pressure cook for 10 minutes, sprinkle some rose water and add few saffron strands and keep it aside well covered for keeping the aroma intact.
2-Fry half of the shredded onions in oil and keep it aside.
3-Add oil (I don’t use much ghee) in a Kadhai and when it’s hot add garam masala, Bay Leaves, and the left of the shredded onions and bit of sugar.
4-Cook till onion gets golden brown. Add shredded vegetables alongwith prawns and cook for 10 to 12 minutes with low flame.
5-Add salt, yoghurt, cashew and kismis into the cooked vegetables and further cook it for 5 minutes with low flame.
6-Add 1 tbsp of Everest Biriyani Masala.
7-When You are done with it mix half of the cooked rice properly into the kadhai so that you get a mixture of vegetables and white-orange colored rice due to saffron.
8-In a pot, Add other half of the rice then a layer of vegetables and then a layer of rice. Garnish it with mint leaves and fried onions.
9-Serve it hot. Serves 4 people.
10-If you do not like prawns, simply replace that ingredient and enjoy you tasty vegetable biryani.
