Veg Biryani without grinding

The easiest way to make the yummiest Veg Biryani. The only job you have to do is chopping the vegetables. That too if you do it in advance and keep ready in the refrigerator, in just 20 minutes the spicy flavourful Biryani is ready. I prefer this method while doing for more number of people like potlucks, parties and picnics...
