Mixed Beans Biryani ~ Simple One pot Meal

Mixed Beans Biryani

Mixed Bean Biryani is a one pot meal with spicy Indian Masala and protein rice beans included. Its a complete meal on itself and you just need a Raitha on the side to enjoy this meal.

While I had other plans for the third day of Combo dishes, I ended up sharing this recipe as the planned dish didn’t materialize. Finally, you get to read this most commonly prepared Combo meal a spicy biryani with Raitha. The ease with which you can make this dish, you can complete your meal with this itself, with just an onion raitha on the side.

Many times when we are making nonveg for the family, we resort to such one-pot meals for the vegetarians. So this was our meal couple of weeks back. As you might have guessed, this was saved for the One pot Meal, which I am reluctantly sharing for this theme. I was not really happy with this choice as the dish I had in mind for the third day was very interesting. Hopefully, that will get done sometime!

After Aloo Masala for Poori and Vada Curry for Appam, this Easy Mixed Beans Biryani is the final dish for the Combo Dishes.

  1. We make plans but sometimes things work out differently. The biryani is a perfect one pot meal and goes great with raita. Protein rich and nutritious.

  2. I also resort to these kind of one pot meals when I am in a hurry and a hearty meal is warranted. Should try adding mixed beans next time.

  3. I always make one pot meals during holidays, since I get more time to rest. This biryani with mixed beans looks so delicious and I would be really happy to have that plate for myself.

  4. So true, I am a vegetarian and my family a non-vegetarian, I resort to such meals many a time, and it is a completely healthy meal in itself. I have yet to make a biryani with mixed beans. Would love to try your version.

  5. One pot dishes make life easier when you are not in a mood to spend too much time in kitchen. This biryani full of flavors and packed with nutrients looks very delicious.

  6. That looks gorgeous Valli. Biryani always scares me but you make it look so easy….maybe I will dare and try it after all! Bookmarking this. Yum yum yum

  7. This is an awesome briyani Srivalli!My kids keep asking for briyani in the lunch box and no matter how I make it, they need a new variety. Luckily the lil one loved beans / legumes so this is something both of them will love!
