Easy No Tomato Vegetable Biryani in Pressure Cooker

Vegetable Biryani

This Easy No Tomato Vegetable Biryani is the easiest one you can make for packing for your lunch or as a party dish. The first time we made, we used all the vegetables, it was still good as I need not worry about removing the onions from the kids lunch box.

Everybody loved it and I had to repeat and the second time I made I used only peas. With so many versions of vegetable biryanis and pulaos on the blog, I didn’t even have the energy to check if this was a version I have already recorded or not. Still it was worth clicking and sharing as this is something kids loved.

Another major point in this biryani was not using Tomatoes. Yes, its really important we have recipes that are prepared with some of the main ingredients and see how we can substitude differently. I have used curds in this rice dish and it comes out really well.

This is the last recipe in the BM#85 Week 1 for Main Course Rice/Gravy, after sharing Paneer lababdar and Sprouts Moong Makhani, I have this easy quick one pot meal! This biryani can be served with an easy Brinjal Curry that also gets done by the time this biryani gets cooked.

  1. Good one, Valli. I agree with you that sometimes we lose track of whether a particular version of the dish is already on the blog or not πŸ™‚ We love curd based biryanis at home.

  2. I too have tried so many versions of biriyani that I myself can’t keep track of what ingredients I’ve added each time. I like your no-tomato version. Looks very tempting.
