Vegetable Biryani | Easy Veg Biryani for Kids Lunch Box

Vegetable Biryani

This easy Vegetable Biryani is very quick to make and easy to pack for your kids lunch box. Since it is cooked in pressure cooker with just basic ingredients, you can get this done in no time.

I made this dish during February and when it become clear that I was going to have tough time achieving my target of 52 dishes in just a month, I knew I had to use whatever extra I could lay my hands on.

This recipe is from my colleague’s mom who makes some delicious biryanis. Call this biryani or pulao, it always tastes amazing and we keep asking for the recipe. One fine day, she messaged me the recipe and I immediately set out to make for the kids lunch box next day.

She had missed out ginger garlic paste and coriander powder, and I felt these two made the rice dish different from what I normally make. And the fact that she kept calling this veg biryani, I decided this would perfectly suit my need for a 30 min quick meal for kids lunch box.

Vegetable Biryani is the pick for V in the AtoZ Quick Under 30 Minutes, which is my theme in the Biryanis, Pulaos, Khichdis and Mixed Rices. If you want to read some elaborate Biryanis, check out what I have for V in Spice your Life!

  1. I prepare a similar version using green chilies instead of chili powder and just call it a pulao. It doesn’t matter whether you call it a pulao or biryani but it makes a quick and delicious one pot meal for sure.

  2. I love the addition of mint leaves to a pulao or a biryani as it gives a nice taste to it. Love how easy this one is to make with the tomatoes and veggies.

  3. I love such quick to make one pot meals. Even my mom used to call veg pulao as biryani, so I always had the confusion about which is biryani and which one is pulao. This version looks absolutely yum and perfect for kids lunch boxes.

  4. Love these one-pot meals. For me all pulavs are biryanis and all biryanis are pulavs especially after this marathon as I ended up making everything in the pressure cooker. ;-)This one without dhaniya powder is very nice.
