Methi Pulao

I love rice dishes and specially one pot meals. I prefer biryani, pulaos, fried rice and different rice varieties any day over rice and curries. When Valli announced rice dishes, I picked this theme without any hesitation and will pick it again next time we have this theme. Just three days of rice dishes is […]

Hyacinth Beans Rice ~ Anapa Ginjala Annam

In my A-Z Challenge Journey Through Telangana Cuisine, I stumbled on a hurdle, again!! I never excepted I would have trouble coming up with recipes this early in to the challenge. I had to use one of the clauses to pass this hurdle, an English name of the main ingredient or the dish. Being a […]

Egg Pulao

After yesterday’s shrimp pulao, I have another one pot meal. Last Friday when I made the shrimp pulao, Mr.U liked it a lot and wanted me to cook it again. Since I did not have any shrimp in the freezer, he wanted me to make it with eggs. I was a bit lazy to do […]

Raju Gari Royyala Pualo ~ Shrimp Pulao

I like one pot meals, specially rice dishes such as biryani, pulao and other rice varieties that can be served with or without a side dish. Few days ago, this Raju Gari Pulao made rounds in one of the Facebook groups I am a member of. Almost everyone in the group cooked this pulao and […]

Vegetable Pulao ~ Bagara in a Pressure Cooker

I use my pressure cooker(s) on a regular basic, at least two – three times a week, if not every day. I use it mostly for cooking lentils & legumes, goat meat and once in a while to cook bottle gourd. Although bottle gourd looks tender, at times it takes longer to cook and in […]

Rajma Pulao ~ Kidney Beans Rice

Rajma or kidney beans are kidney shaped red color beans which are very rich in fiber, protein, iron & many other nutrients. Although these beans have many health benefits, under cooked and raw beans are toxic. Dry beans need to be soaked for at least 5 hours and cooked in boiling water for at least […]

Chikkudu Annam ~ Valor Lilva (Indain Beans) Rice

After yesterday’s lengthy post on Biryanis, I am not sure how to start this one. Well, at my home, non-vegetarian rice varieties are usually biryani and the vegetarian varieties are usually bagara and annam (rice) prepared with the fresh legumes such as fresh garbanzo beans, fresh Indian broad beans or valor lilva and anapakaya or […]
