The vegetarian version of the Biryani is usually made with a variety of easily available ingredients such as peas, cauliflower, carrots and capsicum.
This vegetarian recipe is the closest I could  get to the all time favourite chicken or Mutton Biryani.It tastes awesome.This recipe is a treat to all the vegetarians who miss out on the heavenly experience of relishing the Biryani.
