veg biriyani recipe | vegetable biryani recipe in banana leaf | veg dum biryani with step by step photo and video recipe. rice-based pulao and biriyani recipes are one of the popular and versatile indian recipes. basically, it may have started with one or 2 flavours, but now there are myriad ways and types to season, wrap and flavour it. one such simple and easy variant biriyani is the vegetable biriyani recipe in banana leaf with both dum style cooking and steaming for extra flavour and taste.

well, we know the different types of biriyani recipes with the dum or pressure cooked way. but there aren’t many recipes which are wrapped in a leaf and also dum cooked. this recipe is one of them with biriyani rice is wrapped in a banana leaf and then steamed in a steamer. it not only holds the spice flavour but also makes the biriyani rice moist and flavoured. i do get a lot of questions from my readers about the biriyani rice and it turning hard or dry after it is dum cooked. while it can be tricky to cook the rice but this way of cooking the rice would certainly make it moist and juicy. you may use any other type of large leaf for the same purpose, but i personally feel banana leaf is ideal. if you are a biriyani lover or anyone in your family, you should certainly try this once and see the difference.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the veg biriyani recipe. firstly, the gravy for this recipe is key and i would heavily recommend making a semi-dry gravy so that it can be easily wrapped with the rice. moreover, you may follow any type of gravy including the meat for this recipe and follow the same steps and procedure. secondly, if you do not wish to steam it in banana leaf, you may follow the traditional dum style cooking for this biriyani. instead of wrapping in a leaf, you may layer the gravy first and add rice on top of it and cook for 30 minutes on a low flame. lastly, i always recommend using basmati rice for any type of biriyani recipe. recently we started using banno basmati rice brand and i would heavily recommend that for this recipe.
