Vegetable Biryani is part of our favorite menu on a lazy weekend. The spices can be altered to any flavor needed for variety and most importantly, it can be consumed all by itself without any accompaniment but definitely adds taste if eaten with Kurma or Raita. And the aroma of Basmati rice with all the spices will drag you out of the bed/couch and energize you.....yummy
