Indian Vegetarian Rice Recipes, 675 Rice Recipe Collection

indian vegetarian rice recipes. indian rice recipes. A meal without a rice bowl on the table seems so incomplete! Indeed, rice is one of the staple grains in India, and there are numerous types of rice available in our country. From the Basmati rice used for pulaos and Biryanis to the Surti Kolam used for khichdi, the parboiled rice available to make idlis and dosas, and the innumerable varieties of South Indian rice like Ponni and Sona Masuri. For most Indians, meals like lunch and dinner generally include at least a cup of rice, along with rotis and other dishes.

Rice can be served plain, with accompaniments like dal, subzis, sambhar and rasam, or it can be prepared into one-dish meals like pulaos, Biryani, Khichdi and baked rice dishes. Whether you want to have something light or heavy, you can find a rice dish to match your requirement. International Favorites can be Indo-Chinese, Mexican or Thai. Serve them with various accompaniments to make a fuller meal.

Indian Vegetarian Biryani Recipes

Lajjatdar Handi BiryaniLajjatdar Handi Biryani

Biryani is a delectable Indian dish, made of layering rice and flavorful gravy. It is then cooked by dum method i.e closed lid lined with a dough or simply pressure-cooked. You can even make them in a non-stick pan. Most biryanis are topped with saffron and mint before cooking, which enhances the taste and aroma of the dish! When served with raita and papad, they make a wholesome meal. Kabuli Chana Kofta Biryani and Lajjatdar Handi Biryani are my favorite Biryani recipes that you must try making at home. Enjoy it hot and fresh with a garnish of fried onions.

Khichdi Recipes

Dal KhichdiDal Khichdi

Khichdi is a one-pot meal made using rice and dal. To enhance the flavor you can add spices or vegetables. It is not only light on the stomach but also, nutritious. Khichdi is surely my comfort food when served with a bowl of curd, tangy pickle and crunchy papad. When you have a long day at work or are looking for an easy recipe, you can quickly pressure cook khichdi with whichever dal is available at home. Check our collection of 103 Khichdi recipes.

Apart from this, you can toss cooked rice with spices and condiments to create an array of Pulao and International Favorites. Pulao is an authentic Indian rice preparation which is extremely aromatic and mildly spiced. If your pulao is bland, serve it with kadhi, else a simple raita or a cup of masala curd will do.

Traditional Rice Preparations

Depending upon locally available ingredients, each Indian region has some of the other traditional speciality. Here is a list of some popular Traditional Indian rice recipes :

1. Chitranna Rice

2. Tendli Bhaat

3. Gujarati Masala Bhaat

4. Gatte ka Pulao

By just skipping the addition of ingredients like onion, garlic and root vegetables, you can transform any rice preparation into a Jain variant. Many quick rice recipes can be made, packed and carried in the lunch box.
