About Tahari Recipe

Simple one pot meals can be so filling and easy to make. They make perfect lunch box meals as well as healthy. I somehow find it very lazy and time consuming to cook elaborate meals like dal,curry and rice. Don't you think so? Especially in Hyderabad when you have water problem touching peaks during summers, cooking gives you a hard time. You definitely cannot eat out everyday and escape day's cooking. On my quest to find out something easy and tasty to prepare under 45 mins, I found many recipes like Tawa Pulao, Tahiri, Simple biryani, Vegetable Pulao, Paneer Pulao and Bisi bela baath.Coming back to the recipe, this is a regional special all the way from Uttar Pradesh and happens to be my first post experimenting regional cuisines. Simple and close to biryani but not at all elaborate. You can even make it with left over rice and doesn't need much chopping. Sounds good right? It is very tasty and mildly spiced pulao which definetely finds way to my lunch box often.

Ingredients to make Tahari

How to make Tahari

  1. Cook rice along with 1 and 1/2 cups of water and 1 tbsp of oil. Ensure that your rice is 75% cooked. Heat butter in a cooking pan and fry jeera for a min.
  2. Add onions and fry till translucent. Now fry green chillies for about 1 min. To this mixture, add ginger garlic paste and fry until the raw smell subsides.
  3. Add all the vegetables along with other ingredients mentioned except coriander. Ensure that vegetables and spices are mixed well.
  4. If needed, add 1/4th cup of water to this mixture and cook for about 3-4 mins. You will get gravy consistency. Simmer your flame and add rice to it.
  5. Mix all the ingredients well. Cook for 2-3 mins. Add chopped coriander. Adjust spices and salt if required.
  6. Transfer the contents onto a serving bowl. Serve hot with raita.

My Tip:

You can add any vegetables of your choice. I love to load my rice recipes with vegetables so I have added cauliflower and corn as well. Instead of adding water while cooking vegetables, you can add 1/4th cup of curd to get a tangy biryani taste.
