Vegetables I recommend peas, carrots, chunks of potatoe and green beans. These will

flavor with their juices. You will love it! It really brngs the vegetable flavor into

the briyani. Most vegetable briyani we taste are bland. It even begs the question,

"What is it made of ?". So go ahead and let all the parts contribute to the whole

vegetable flavor!

Quality Give careful attention to the cooking time and amount of water. These important

factors will help you turn out the best briyani in town. Enjoy and serve my special

vegetable briyani recipe!
