Quick Layered Vegetable Biryani

Layered Vegetable Biryani, a flavorful and delicious combination of rice and vegetables.I used store bought Biryani masala and blanched the vegetables before adding them in rice to make a quicker version of the classic Veg Biryani. It really helps you save time and you can impress your guest when in a jiffy.

This week I will be posting three different kinds  of rice recipes for my Blogging Marathon theme and the first day is Layered rice dishes.I have always loved rice based dishes and can have them anytime a day.Sometimes if I had leftover rice from night I can enjoy them for my breakfast as well.So when I see the theme “rice” I always pick it without thinking.

I have adapted the recipe from Rak’s Kitchen and totally loved it.If you guys also love rice and are crazy for them like me then go ahead and do try making this quick and easy Biryani and make your everyday regular meal a little special.
