Vegetable Biryani Fusion

This weekend I was thinking what can I make for my weekdays lunch. I look at my fridge and I have few vegetables that could be used for. Then, an easy vegetable biryani is one of the choices. I never made it. I search in www.indianhealthyrecipes.com - It is one of my favorite website to learn different kind of Indian food.

Biryani actually comes from Persian. It is the art of cooking rice with frying or roasting. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biryani It gives another different taste of the Basmati rice with the mixture of vegetables, spices, nuts and raisins.
Here I created my own variety of vegetable Biryani. I used aubergines and cabbages in my vegetable Biryani. For the rice, you may use leftover rice or overnight rice.

Flat bread with sourdough starter and coconut milk

Another day with playing dough in the kitchen. I love to play dough in the kitchen. It relieves my mind and let my creativity playing around with the available ingredients in my kitchen.

Because I do not have oven here, I could only do something on my electric stove with pan and pot. I planned to make flat bread with whole wheat flour / Atta in India. The flour is a bit rough than all purpose flour / Maida in India.

Here I do another experiment with Indian flour and my sourdough starter that is almost 3 months old.
