I am a Hyderabadi and I love Hyderabadi food. Whenever any function or event takes place in Hyderaba...
- Basmati rice - 2 cups
- Water - three and half cups
- Oil - 3 tablespoons
- Bay Leaf - 2
- Cinnamon - 4
- Cardamom - 3
- Onions - 1(finely chopped)
- Green Chillies - 2(finely chopped)
- Mint leaves - handful
- Curry leaves - 6
- Salt - As per taste
- Coriander powder - Half teaspoon
- Garam masala powder - Half teaspoon
- Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
- Red Chilli powder - Half teaspoon
Take a pressure cooker to heat and add oil to it. Add bay leaf, cinnamon, cardamom, onions and green chillies. Fry till the onions turn light brown in color.
Add mint leaves, curry leaves, salt, coriander powder, garam masala powder and ginger-garlic paste. Mix well and cook for 5 mins.
Add the basmati rice and mix well so that the masala gets coated to the rice.
Add red chilli powder along with water. Cook for 5 mins. Then pressure cook it for 4 whistles.
Once done, remove from heat and serve hot.
Serve the Hyderabadi Bagara Rice with any chicken curry or mutton curry for non-vegetarians and paneer curry for vegetarians. Have it along with raita and enjoy its delicacy.
