Biryani is not just food but an emotion! While we are familiar with chicken and mutton biryani, there is a new type of biryani on the menu. Chef Saransh Goila has created a masoor aloo biryani—or is it a pulao? Well, who cares about the name when it tastes delicious?

Though many don’t agree, there is something called veg biryani which includes kathal, paneer, mushroom and so on. Chef Saransh Goila has created a new masoor aloo biryani and shared it on Instagram. In the post, he starts with a question of whether the rich dish is biryani or a pulao. He gives free rein for Netizens to take their pick. However, it will take the same amount of hard work to create a delicious dish!
He was shocked at how good the rice preparation turned out to be. And he would serve it to guests at festivals. The recipe starts with mustard oil in a heavy-bottom saucepan with peeled potatoes and turmeric and saute them. Further, add sliced onions in the same oil with bay leaves, cinnamon stick, star anise and black cardamom.
The rest of the recipe is just like making a pulao with a special touch of potatoes, a trademark of Kolkata biryani.
Vegetarian Biryanis To Try
Though biryani is always made with some kind of meat, India has different types of vegetarian biryanis.
1. Kathal Biryani
This flavorful, substantial dish is made with raw jackfruit and has a wonderful, juicy taste. Basmati rice is dum-cooked with a lot of herbs and spices and lightly seasoned kathal biryani. Hard-core non-vegetarians can also like this biryani since unripe jackfruit has a mushy, meaty feel.
2. Vegetable Dum Biryani
The most well-liked vegetarian biryani is this one. Vegetable dum biryani is made using basmati rice and fresh veggies and is spiced with a variety of whole spices. As the name implies, it is prepared in the dum technique, which involves cooking on a low flame while trapping the steam inside the pan.
3. Mushroom Biryani
If you enjoy mushrooms, you must try this biryani. Mushrooms are marinated in spice powders before being cooked with rice, coconut milk, and whole spices. This one-pot dish is scrumptious and packed with nutrients. The fact that this dish cooks more quickly than the majority of other biryanis is another fantastic feature.
