Vegetable Briyani

I love to make one pot recipe which is easy to make and time saving. This one is very simple Veg biryani with minimal ingredients.
When it comes to biryani or Pulao the main part is basmati rice, here for this recipe you can use any branded basmati rice, Jeeraga Samba rice or any long grain rice but in the case of long grain rice i found the flavor is bit missing.
And regarding vegetables you can use, Frozen Peas, Potatoes, Beans, Carrot

Here goes the recipe

Water - 4 cups
Oil - 1 table spoon
Bay leaf, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Cloves - each one

Tomato - 1
Mint leaves - 1 handful
Green Chilly - 1
Chilly Powder - 1 tsp
