Vegetable Biryani (Tehri)
Tehri was originally concocted by kings in northern India as a vegetarian equivalent to the Mughals' mutton or chicken biryani. This modern-day version has deliciously soft sweet vegetables and flavorful long-grain rice. Serve with chilled yogurt and spicy curry on the side.
Substitute 1 cup cauliflower florets for the carrots if desired.
Substitute ghee for the butter if preferred.
