My today's broken wheat biriyani goes definitely for an easy version, with usual spices you can dish out this one pot meal quickly in pressure cooker. Cooking through pressure cooker makes our life easier, obviously if you are in hurry just go with pressure cooking. With handful of mixed vegetables this incredible, diabetic friendly briyani makes an excellent meal to serve along with your favourite side dish and raita.

Am running this week's blogging marathon with 'Recipes with Wholegrains' as theme, obviously i cant think more than wheat rava to dish out this flavourful one pot meal.You can pack this incredible briyani in anyone's lunch box. If you are using frozen vegetables, then this biriyani gets ready very much easily than you can imagine. This dish is completely vegan and diabetic friendly, if you want to add more flavor, dont forget to use coconut milk or else yogurt. However i went for an easy breezy preparation of this healthy biriyani with simple and usual ingredients. As i told earlier, this incredible biriyani goes to this week's blogging marathon.

The only way I think of using broken wheat is to make the famous gujarati sweet dish lapsi. The biryani looks so delicious, I am now going to put broken wheat to better use.
