I bet you this rice could be a better dish for a weeknight dinner. The perfect Bagara rice combination curry would be Bagara Baingan or this Instant pot potato curry. Bagara Khana would be awesome to eat with chicken curry or mutton curry. And other side dishes for this simple bagara rice are bagara baingan Mirchi ka salan and tomato chutney

What is Bagara rice?

Bagara Rice recipe is a less spicy version of Biryani-without vegetables, meat, or masalas. Which is also called bagara khana or bagara chawal in Pakistan known for its Mughal cuisine. If you are running out of time or wish to make simpler everyday food, then this recipe might be your best choice.

Though it is simpler to make, it is equally as good as Biryani. A spicier accompanied side dish elevates the flavor of this Bagara Rice. It gives the full satisfying feeling of having special biryani still made in a vegan way.

Tips:
  1. To make the perfect recipe  soak the rice at least for 2 hours
  2. Pour water equal to the rice quantity 
  3. Long grain rice is the best for using bagara rice 
  4. For enhancing and aromatic taste can be cooked rice in pure ghee/banaspati ghee 
  5. To give a nice brownish color to rice fry the onion until turns to golden brown color
