Layered vegetable biryani/ Hyderabadi vegetable biryani/ Vegetable biryani recipe/ Dum biryani

Biryani is one of the famous recipe in india. During sunday's lot of indian houses are filled with a  aroma of biryani.  As we all know hyderabad is famous for biryani. This layered biryani is also its kind.  I have dum cooked this biryani in pressure cooker. Traditionally it is cooked in clay pots. Layered  veg biryani is slightly different from regular veg biryani. It has lots of crunchy fried onions and fried nuts. making it richer and tastier. Cooking biryani really needs little bit patient.  You have to cook the grains soft and seperate. It should not be mushy.

Hello friends and readers ... Its been long time since  i updated a recipe in my blog. Its because of my tight schedule. I was busy in packing a things for cargo and cleaning my entire home for past one month. Ya we are again relocating to India. It will take a month or two to reassemble the things here. Meanwhile we also planned a trip to our hometowns. So no cooking these days and will be pampered by my mom. (lucky girl!!!) But  without cooking, i feel like i lost something and  life is bland.  My husband also miss my food. But soon i ll spread aroma in our new home(kitchen).

Peas pulao / Matar pulao / Pattani sadam

Peas pulao is a flavourful one pot meal.  Its also simple and easy to prepare.  I have made it several times  and every time i got a  tasty pulao. My husband likes this  pulao very much. So usually  in sundays i prepare this pulao and pair it up with onion raita. 
     Peas pulao + onion raita and curd  rice + pickle  makes a hearty meal during weekends. Should i say to take a nap after this wholesome and hearty meal?  enjoy this weekend by having delicious and flavourful peas pulao.

Strawberry milkshake

 Strawberry milkshake ia very refreshing drink during summer.  If you are making it for kids, you can add  scoop of vanilla icecream for more richer and creamier milkshake. But i didn't add icecream. I made it simple with milk alone. Still it tastes great.
