Main components of biryani:

Rice: of course rice is the base and key ingredient of this dish. Long grain basmati rice is what is traditionally used. I highly recommend using extra-long grain aged basmati rice for biryani. I use the Zebra Sella Basmati Rice and it works so well.

Veggies: so traditionally meat is used in biryani but since we are making veg biryani, we are using assorted vegetables here. I have used potato, cauliflower, beans and carrots.You can use green peas, mushrooms or even paneer would be a good addition.

Spices: aromatic and exotic spices  (both whole and ground) are a must for a good biryani. Most commonly used are cardamom, peppercorns, cumin, saffron, garam masala. Also rose water or kewra water is often used to flavor the biryani.

Fresh herbs & nuts: herbs like mint, cilantro and nuts like cashews are often added as garnishing and to add more texture and flavors to the biryani. Caramelized onions also make a great addition.
