  • 2 med tomatoes finely chopped
  • 2 tspn Biryani Masala (from Indian store)

Add the oil to the pot over a medium fire. When the oil gets hot, add the onion, turmeric powder and biryani masala and saute till the onion turns light brown.

Add the veggies and add tomatos and stir well till the tomato mixes well with the veggies and the veggies are cooked. If the veggies are taking time to cook, add a 1/2 cup water and close the pot with a lid to let the veggies cook.

Now add salt. You also can add a little chile powder and more biryani masala to bring up the spice and flavor.

Once the veggies are cooked add the cooked rice. Over a low fire, stir the rice well with the veggies and masala. Check the taste.

Close the pan for 3 minutes and remove from flame.
