    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    Even if you have diabetes and are craving for rice, you can use soyabeans and make the biryani. You won't really miss the rice. This is Tarla Dalal's recipe from the book Delicious Diabetic Recipes Low Calorie Cooking by Tarla Dalal. If you still must use rice, use unpolished brown rice and not polished white rice. This is a multi-packed biryani. Soyabean is a very healthy pulse, rich in vitamin B. In this recipe, Tarla Dalal has added 3 parts of vegetables to make the glycemic index of this dish lower. The masalas {Spices} make this dish very tasty. You can pack this in a tiffin and take it to lunch with you. Enjoy!
