Vermicelli Biryani / Vermicelli Vegetable Biryani

Today's recipe is interesting and delicious everyone's favorite Biryani using Vermicelli. I love vermicelli, its so easy and cok so fast. And also you can make many variety of recipes with this vermicelli and have experimented few recipes with vermicelli like, Tomato Rice Vermicelli Pulao, Vermicelli Broccoli Biryani, Garlic Methi Mutter Vermicelli. This biryani is also one of my favorite vermicelli recipe which I have already posted and few days took pics to update my archived post. But i couldn't upload any pics to that post, dunno the reason. As its one of the Hit post i don't want to delete it, so today am sharing as a new post with new pics. But this time didn't took step wise pics will update it later. Instead of plain Vermicelli Upma or Khicdi this Biryani is loaded with more vegetables and flavor which sure loved by both kids and adults. If u haven't tried this, try it for ur weekend lunch and enjoy this awesome one pot meal with your family. Happy Weekend Everyone!!!
