Vegetable Biryani is a bold and flavorful Indian rice dish with bell peppers, peas, carrots and potatoes in a spiced rice dish made with turmeric, garam masala and other warm spices.Most Indian recipes work well together, this dish is a bit spicy so a yoghurt raita would be great to cool it off a little.

Naan would also be a delicious side option as would other vegetarian Indian dishes like saag paneer or vegetable korma.
