Vegetable rice recipe, no onion no garlic recipes

This vegetable rice is an easy and ideal one to pack for lunch box . Normally i make this during Monday mornings as it is quite lazy to get back into the normal after a weekend. I think most of us have this Monday blues!!. Vegetable Rice or Vegetable Biryani ( my son calls in this way) how ever you name it, it is one of the simplest one and made in a jiffy too. The best part is no need to grind any ingredients and is a simple one pot meal to have to Sunday Brunch too.

  1. I think I need to buy a small cooker for such dishes. The electric rice cooker sometimes does not work as well for these simple recipes. They get too dry. This one seems as if you have a ground masala and yet you have used only dry powders. Nice!

  2. Can I put it in a rice cooker instead of pressure cooker? My mum doesn't want me to use the pressure cooker…
    If it can be done in a rice cooker, how should I do it?

    Thank you 🙂
