Veg Biryani and Cabbage, Onion, Tomato Upma

Lately, I've been feeling a bit lazy to cook anything for myself and also feeling a bit stifled with having so few fresh ingredients to work with. I'm waiting for this sunday when I can buy a truckload from the farmer's market. So, last night, I just ordered a Vegetable Dum Biryani. It came with a yoghurt raita, which I chucked away. My brother's always amazed why someone would pay Rs. 120 for a vegetarian biryani, when for only Rs. 10 more you get the chicken version. Ten rupees - that's the worth of a chicken's life?!

And this morning, for breakfast, a cabbage, onion and tomato upma, along with my coffee-coconut milk concoction.

That upma looks super delicious! You'd think the vegetarian biryani would be a little more inexpensive as compared to the chicken version!

This does look fantastic. You've done a great job.

Regarding your question about "fear" of vegan, I can't hit one of those buttons because I'm not afraid of any part of it. I just choose not to. I love meat and don't have any desire to give it up. I wanted to give an answer but none of the buttons fit mine. :)
