Vegetable biryani recipe, Stovetop veg biryani

Vegetable biryani is a delicious and flavorful one pot meal loaded with veggies. Vegetable biryani can be prepared in many methods like pressure cooker, dum style, oven baked and stove top method a very simple and traditional style not involving much work. According to me the vegetable biryani cooked in stove top method is more delish and also has restaurant touch because it is cooked slowly. A simple raita or kurma along with this simple biryani makes this dish even more yummy. For this recipe I have used soya chunks as well along with veggies for more taste, also the spice level can be altered according to your taste. So lets get to the making!
