What an Experiment with all the spices I use on a regular basis combined into one dish.
Biryani is an Indian rice used in fancy or special occasion dishes. Because I wanted to try something new, I combined the idea of stew without the sauce into the rice for an easy bake vegetable rice. Although, this meal tastes better with Jasmine Thai Rice, Biryani was the rice of choice for this meal
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
