Wash the rice with water. Drain the water keep rice aside. Heat the thick bottom non stick sauce pan. Add ghee after it becomes hot add bay leaves, pepper, cloves, onion. Fry till onion turns golden brown. Then add ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder. Saute for few minutes. Add all cut vegetables. Fry for 4-5 min. Then add rice and saute for about 7-8 min on medium flame. Then add red chili powder, garam masala, biryani masala saute for 3-4 min. Then add hot water and salt, stir well. Cover with the lid keep the high flame for about 4-5 min. You will observe that most of the water is soaked by the rice and vegetables. Then remove the lid stir rice upside down very carefully otherwise rice will get broken. Keep the low flame and cook it for about 10-12 min.

Instead of ginger garlic paste i use 5 in 1 masala. It tastes superb.
