1Add the oil mixture to a large pan. When the oil gets heated, add the onion slices to the pan and fry the onions till they turn translucent for 10 min.
2Now add all the vegetables, peanuts and the masala mixture and fry them all together stirring occasionally for 10 min.
3Add the rice to the above mixture and saute the mixture for 5 min, till the rice turns a little crispy. Then add the coconut milk and water and give the mixture a stir.
4Now do open-gas-top-cooking for the biriyani for about 20-25 min till all the vegetables and rice boils and combine to form a thick and moist rice delicacy and remove from heat. Garnish/stir in the cilantro leaves while hot.
5For best results, serve the Biryani once it has cooled to ensure the complete absorption of all the flavors.
