Bagara Annam/ Bagara Rice


Basmati rice - 4 rice cups
Oil - 2 tbsp + Ghee - 1 tbsp

Whole garam masala - {4 cloves, 4 cardamom (opt, always smash lightly to open), 1 inch cinnamon stick, 1 tsp shah jeera, 1 tbsp bujju puvvu, 4 bay leaves, 1 marati mogga (opt), 1 star anise (opt) and 1 mace (opt)}

Green chillies - 5no. (slit length wise)

Onion - 1 m.
(sliced thinly)

Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp

Mint leaves - 2 handful

Salt - 2 tsp
Water - 6 rice cups


1) Heat a pressure cooker on low heat, add ghee + oil, once hot add whole spices, fry for few secs.

2) Add sliced green chilli, fry.

3) Add onion and fry until light brown, then add gg paste and mint leaves fry for 5 mins.

4) Add washed drained rice to it, mix gently to coat with spices, once water dries up.

5) Add measured water + salt to it and mix gently.

6) Cover with lid, increase the heat to medium-low and keep the weight on and pressure cook for 1 whistle. and switch off.

7) Once pressure is down, remove the lid, and mix it with fork. Serve.

Serve with any Spicy Curry, like Gongura Mamsam or Bagara Baingan and Raita.

Equally goes well with Aloo Kurma or Tomao Egg Curry

For my style:

Opt the ingredients too.

Pressure Cooker:

5 litre one would be good


Bujju Puvvu = Black Stone flower (please google)
