Bagara Rice Recipe


Bagara Rice | Flavoured Rice || How to Make Bagara Rice with step-by-step photos 

Bagara Rice is a flavorful version of rice made with Basmati rice and fried onion. This recipe is from the popular Hyderabadi Cuisine from India. Which is known for its unique rich flavored vegetarian dishes? This cuisine has been influenced by Arab, Mughal, and Indian cuisine.

The Bagara rice recipe is simple and easy to make and still tastes like a professional chef's. This is not much popular in regular Pakistani restaurants  You don’t need to search for Pakistani restaurants to eat this food as you can make it by yourself in your kitchen. In comfort adjust the flavors to your preferences. Bagara rice with sprinkled fried onions on the top…yummm..without any further thinking, I can surrender myself.


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. Other side dishes for this simple bagara rice are bagara baingan Mirchi ka salan and tomato chutney

What is Bagara Rice?

The 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.

  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 an aromatic taste can be cooked rice in pure ghee/vanaspati ghee 
  5. To give a nice brownish color to rice fry the onion until turns to a golden brown color
