Instant pot vegetable biryani, one pot style. A spicy flavorful easy method made in one pot. Quick video, step by step photos.

When I received Instant pot last year, one of the very first dishes I tried was Biryani. Since I make weekly once or 10 days once, I made the same one I make over stove top in Instant pot. Later I wanted to post a simpler version without any grinding part, so tried few times until now and thought of sharing it here too.

Though I am using IP everyday, some how not posting much as I am in dilemma whether to post as new or update the old posts with an added section. But when it comes to biryani, I thought it deserves a separate post. This is a short cut version of the biryani, made in one pot, not the layered version.

You can adapt your own recipe too keeping this as guidance, slightly varying the recipe and method. Only thing to watch out for is to avoid Burnt warning. There are two places where you can encounter the problem. Once is while adding ginger garlic paste and spice powders, the other is when pressure cooking rice.

So I add 1/4 cup water along ginger garlic paste to get a gravy kind and avoid the first situation. Second can be avoided just if you add water correctly. Please note down what you are adding and adjust the recipe and method slightly as per your requirement.

I used Indiagate Premium and Organic sea salt. So according to the brand you use you can adjust if there is any need.
