      This is a very tasty and filling biryani. I prepared this yesterday in a slightly different way from yours. I cooked the rice separately and added it to the veggies and masala mixture which I cooked separately. Also, I cooked the lentils separately until tender. I omitted the ginger and used a paste of 4 onions and 7 cloves of garlic. I added this paste in step 1 after heating the oil, i.e., I stir-fried the onion-garlic paste. Then I added the masalas and continued to stir-fry. In another pot on the side, I cooked the veggies until soft. I added the cooked veggies to the masala and onion paste mixture. I also used a paste of 6 tomatoes in this biryani which I added at this stage. Instead of kidney beans, I used whole green lentils(green moong dal) as my Mom is not allowed to have kidney beans or she suffers from swelling on her feet. I cut down the bell pepper to just 1/2 and not a whole one. As for the masalas, I used 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder, 1 tbsp. corriander powder, 1 tbsp. garam masala powder, 1 tsp. red chilli powder, 2 cloves, 1/4 inch cinnamon stick and 2 bay leaves. I used 2 carrots, 100 gms. greenpeas, 2 potatoes(cut into cubes), 100 gms. French beans and 100 gms. cauliflower. I garnished this with fresh corriander leaves and everyone enjoyed this meal. Thanks for sharing!
