Air Fryer Vegetable Biriyani


  • 1 cup Basmati Rice
  • 1 onion
  • 5 mushrooms
  • 1 pepper
  • 2 small carrots
  • 1 block of paneer
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp ground coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tbsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tbsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp chopped green chillies
  • 1 tbsp ginger paste
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Coriander to garnish
  • Pomegranate to top


  1. Boil the rice in some water for 10 minutes. Once the 10 minutes are up, drain the rice and leave to the side.
  2. Add the chopped onions, cumin seeds, green chillies, garlic, and ginger paste to a pan and allow to caramelise in some oil. Then add the chopped vegetables and mix.
  3. Stir in the cubes of paneer along with all the other spices. After a couple of minutes add the salt and pepper.
  4. Once the vegetables are a little softer but not entirely cooked, take off the heat and leave to the side.
  5. In an air fryer proof dish, add one layer of rice. Then, add a layer of the vegetable mixture. Keep doing this until the mixture is used up.
  6. Put the rice as the last layer and garnished with coriander.
  7. Add a splash of water on top of the rice, to stop the rice from crisping, then select Air Fryer for 15 minutes at 180°C
  8. Ignore when it says to turn food, and once finished, top with pomegranate seeds!
