How to make Bagara Annam

  1. Take half of the sliced onions and fry them in oil till they turn crisp. Drain these fried onions.
  2. In the same oil, fry the remaining half of onions till they turn translucent.
  3. Add green chillies. Fry them for 5-7 seconds.
  4. Add shah jeera, bay leaves, cloves, ilaichi, cinnamon and fry for 5 seconds
  5. Add diced carrots, beans, potatoes, peas and give a nice stir.
  6. To this add coriander seeds powder and mix well.
  7. Add water to this and bring it to a boil.
  8. Now, add salt and give it a nice stir.
  9. Add cleaned and washed basmati rice to this.
  10. Give it a nice stir.
  11. Add chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves on the top.
  12. Put it on medium flame and cook for 15-20 minutes, till rice is entirely cooked.
  13. Turn off the gas stove and garnish it with fried onions, chopped coriander leaves.
My Tip: Dry fruits like kaju, kishmish can be added to give it a rich look. But, adding the vegetables is optional. I have added diced capsicum for an enhanced flavor. But, the original recipe doesn't call for it.
