An easy to make tasty recipe for mixed vegetable biryani which is easily made all in one pan.



110 grams Basmati rice dried

4 tbsp Fat free natural yoghurt

1 medium Potato (peeled and cubed)

160 grams Green Beans (trimmed and chopped)

2 medium Carrots (peeled and finely chopped)

2 Cloves

1 tsp Cinnamon (ground)

1 tsp Crushed cardamon seeds

1 tsp Ground Coriander

1 tsp Ground Cumin

1 tsp Mild Chilli Powder

0.5 tsp Turmeric

2 cloves Garlic (crushed)

1 tsp Finely grated Ginger

1 medium Onion (finely chopped)


Spray a large lidded saucepan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and gently stir fry for 5-6 minutes until lightly browned and softened.

Add the ginger, garlic, turmeric, chilli powder, cumin, cinnamon, coriander, cardamom seeds and cloves. Stir fry for a further 2-3 minutes.

Add the vegetables and yoghurt and cook gently for another 2-3 minutes.

Add the rice and some seasoning and stir fry for another 2-3 minutes.

Pour on 200ml boiling water and bring to the boil. Cover tightly and reduce the heat to very low and cook undisturbed for 12-15 minutes.

Remove from heat but still leave undisturbed and leave to stand with the lid still tight on for a further 10 minutes.

Fluff with a fork and serve.


Whilst it is advised not to reheat rice dishes I have reheated this and am still alive. The choice as always is yours!
