      This was my first time making biryani. This was a flavorful dish that was not difficult to make. I didn't have dried fenugreek leaves, so I used a little lesser amount of ground fenugreek. For my vegetable mix, I used broccoli florets, carrot, and peas. This is a great way to use up small quantities of those leftover veggies. We did not feel that this recipe needed a "huge" pot. I served the biryani with garlic naan from Trader Joe's. I would have this again. Thanks!
