A long weekend ahead..
I should have stayed back home..
Would have got 3 more days to stay...
And my earned leaves are all the savings that I have, since I can't count my Insurance policy as a saving..
A long weeekend and I still haven't got any entries for the curry mela yet.. *Sigh*
Hey, I am back ;-) Again.
This is one quickie Biryani.
My concept of a Biryani is Smell of Fried Cloves and Basmati Rice( The aromatic variety. I have used broken Biryani or Tukda which is what I have for food everyday).
This was cooked as a quickie meal, and I only has the nice smelling Basmati Tukda.
I threw in a couple of Tomatoes, a handful of French beans and there I was, with a Veg Biryani that I suddenly wanted to cook everyday.
1 cup Basmati Rice
A handful of French Beans.
One medium Sized onion Finely Chopped.
4 cloves of garlic and a finger of ginger finely chopped.
The usual Masalas....
Let sputter 5 cloves of clove, 1 Tsp Jeera, 1 Tsp Mustard seed and a Bayleaf.
Add a Red Kashmiri Chilli too.
Add finely chopped Onions.
Add the chopped Ginger Garlic.
Add half a Tsp of red chilli powder.
Now add the Tomatoes and the beans.
Saute for a few minutes.
Add the Rice, and water.
Level of water should be about an inch above the rice.
Add a tsp of Biryani masala ( you may replace it with Garam amasala or just Dhania + Jeera powder).
Add salt to taste.
Cover and let out 3 whistles.
Open and serve.
For the Fried Karela, refer to my old recipe here.
