Vegetable Brinji Rice Recipe - Veg Brinji Rice Recipe with step wise pictures.
Flavourful vegetable brinji rice which not only taste delicious but is very easy to make for any parties or occasions too. So much flavour in this rice.
This recipe is super easy, all you have to do is grind few spices and masala. That forms the base for the biryani. So it is not like a lengthy process. I added some fried bread cubes in this, but you can leave that out.
This recipe is great for parties. You dont need any sidedish like gravies for this. This taste great on its own or with some plain raita and pickle. I served it with my smoked eggplant raita and it was heavenly.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
