Mixed Vegetable Tahiri - Avadh Dish

Mixed vegetable Tahiri is a rice dish that's made in one pot. It's from Avadh, Uttar Pradesh Cuisine. 
I love U.P. Cuisine because of the simple blend of spices used in the recipes yet the dishes are very flavorful.
Got this recipe from an international cooking book and loved it. Good one for a weeknight dinner or lunch boxes.
