Bagara Rice

Bagara Rice is a famous rice preparation of Hyderabad. Any party be it a wedding, birthday or a casual one is never complete without this mildly flavoured basmati rice. The best combination with this is a spicy curry like bagara baingan, chicken curry , mutton or prawns curry. I made Prawns Curry to go along with this.I have already posted the Prawns Curry so now its the turn of Bagara Rice.


Basmati rice – 2 cups
Cinnamon- 1” pieces 2
Cloves - 3
Bay leaves - 2
Shahi jeera - 1 tbsp
Onion- 1 medium sliced
Green chillies- 2-3 slit
Pudina leaves- 15-20 leaves
Ginger garlic paste- 1 tbsp 
Oil- 4 tbsp
Salt- acc to taste
Water – 3 cups


-Wash the rice and keep aside.
-Heat oil in a pressure cooker , once hot add the shahjeera ,cinnamon, cloves and bay leaves. Let them fry for a few seconds till the aroma is released.
-Add the onion, green chillies and ginger garlic paste and fry for 1-2 min till raw smell of ginger garlic paste is gone. Now add the mint leaves. Fry for a min.
-Now add the drained rice and fry till the moisture goes off from the rice.
-Now add water i used 1:1.5 measure for rice to water. Add salt mix well.
-Close the lid and cook for 2 whistles. Once the pressure goes down open the lid and mix carefully so that the rice grains don’t break.
- Serve with a spicy curry.
