A/N: First time I tried layered dum veg Biryani, tried a dum set up. I only cooked one pot meals before. The kids too wouldn’t eat anything spicy. Nowadays they are developing a taste towards spicy tangy foods and so I went ahead to try this layered veg biryani. I can hear non-veg friends telling back that there is nothing called VEG biryani ☺️☺️But that’s how the restaurants name and serve them.

The flu I had, took so much of my energy, that I had no mood to cook different meals for the whole of last month. Just stuck to basics! Today I was back to my own self! Felt good! ☺️

    1. Thanks Dulcy, SoCs Prompt doesn’t allow too much editing. Since this was a easy prompt and since I saw it amidst cooking, I could write with less effort. Thanks for your kind words 😊


  1. Loved your take, HS!

    We’ve been with similar thoughts yesterday. Tired of my mom’s monotonous cooking for a while, I took charge of the kitchen yesterday. I cooked Bread Biryani, almost similar to veg version. So, same pinch! 😅

    1. I have tried with ready made biryani masala and mixed it all in single pot. It’s no where close to the taste of this layered dum style cooking. Try this when you have time in your hands’s yummm ☺️
      Ykw, just yesterday I was thinking, how it would be to meet up… coincidentally sometime!! ☺️ I think we won’t stop our chit chats


      1. Where would I be, not even close to you who’s a Master chef already!

        Ah, I often have such thoughts, in my head I imagine meeting my WordPress family quite often.
        It’s so much fun imagining, how it would be when we meet up in real😎
