Tahari or Tahri is the name given to the vegetarian version of the Biryani and is very popular in Pakistani and Indian homes. In Bangladesh, Tehri refers to Biryani prepared by adding the meat to the rice, as opposed to traditional Biryani where the rice is added to the meat.---info from Wikipedia.
I got this recipe from a pakistani tv show.This biryani calls for very less ingredients.When you don't have veggies at home or when you are lazy to cook a elaborate meal this is the ideal choice,just serve this biryani with raita of your choice.Here goes the recipe...
Basmati rice 2 cups (soaked for 1 hour)
Potatoes 4 (medium size) chopped into big pcs
Onions 2 chopped
Peas 1/4 cup (i used frozen peas,fresh peas can also be used)
Coriander powder 2 tbsp
Red chilly powder 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste 1 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Oil 4 tbsp
In a thick bottom vessel take oil.When hot add onions and fry till brown in colour.
Add chopped potatoes,coriander powder,red chilly powder,ginger garlic paste and turmeric powder.Mix throughly,cover and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Add peas and rice.
Now add enough water for the rice to cook.I used 1 1/2 cup of water for 1 cup of rice.The amount of water depends on the rice used.
