This is a vegan, delicious, and festive dum biriyani made with fresh cranberries of the season! Thus spicy biriyani is perfect to feed a crowd and can be served as a main meal or as even a side. This amazing rice made with cranberries are the perfect one for Thanksgiving!
Tomatoes are added in biriyani and that can be replaced by many other substitutes. The tart cranberries are a great choice to be used in biriyani or any simple rice variety like, Cranberry Rice.
Fried onions are added inthe layers as well as on top. This adds a beautiful texture as well as addictive taste. I recommend keeping that. If you do not have this, caramelize onions by cooking them on stovetop. That works amazing too!
Fresh cranberries are used in this recipe. Frozen ones can be used too. Coconut oil gives amazing flavor to the biriyani just like butter or ghee. Any oil can be used too. Coconut milk also enhances the flavor profile. In total, fragrant rice with aromatic spices, tart cranberry dressing creamy coconut milk results in one if the tastiest biriyani.
This is ‘Dum’ biriyani like Vegetable Dum Biriyani. ‘Dum’ means cooking in its own steam. The veggies and rice with aromatic spices are three-fourth cooked, layered, and then steamed to make amazing and tasty biriyani. This cranberry biriyani uses potatoes, frozen lima beans, cooked garbanzo beans, corn, and peas. Any other veggie can be swapped. Garbanzo and lima beans add to the protein content in this rice.
