"Fragrant basmati rice cooked with choice of mixed vegetables, basic Indian spices and herbs is just irresistible. There are various versions of veg biryani each of them being different from the other. Sharing my version of our favorite veg biryani recipe over here. (Mine is a traditional vegetable biryani made with a twist of mild Indonesian flavours. It is gluten free, super easy to cook and made under 30 minutes.)"
