The Traditional Veg Dum Biryani is made by cooking the rice first and making the gravy with sauce and layering it later and slow cook in a heavy-bottomed pan. As everyone prefers easy and yummy recipe, I am sharing the recipe of Chole biryani recipe, Chana biryani in pressure cooker. I have already posted vegetable biryani in pressure cooker, Paneer Biryani in pressure cooker. I have posted chana pulao recipe very long back in Jeyashri’s kitchen. As I am seeing many recipes online Chole Dum Biryani, I thought of trying out Chole biryani in Pressure cooker.

I followed the recipe of my Paneer Biryani recipe for making this Chole biryani. If you have guests coming home (i know not now, in the future) this can be included in the menu. Just freeze some chana and make this Pressure cooker biryani, for a Sunday brunch. The addition of saffron milk and kasoori methi gives a nice flavor to the Biryani.
