kabuli rice

I happened to go for dinner at one of my husbands friend's house in bangalore and whose wife is from jodhpur,so in dinner she served us this rice variety which was extremely different & awesome but really didnt had a chance of sharing this recipie with her till now ,and one day suddenly i remembered that rice and whatever taste i could feel i tried adventuring in my kitchen and my husband really loved it,since then i keep making this recipie whenever i expect some close guests and they all shower me by their excellent compliments everytime.

ingredients :
2 cups  basmati rice
1sliced onions
1small potato diced
1small carrot diced
1/2 cup cauliflower florets
1/2 capsicum diced
1tbsp peas (frozen)
1cup thick curd
2 slices of bread each cut into 9 equal pcs
1tsp turmeric pwd
1tsp red chilli pwd
1tbsp garam masala
1tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 bay leaf
method :
wash and cook rice , spread and keep it aside.deep fry potatoes,carrots,cauliflower,capsicum ,lastly bread and keep it aside.fry onions in very ltl oil till it turns dark brown in colour,keep it aside.heat ltl oil ,add bay leaf,add ginger garlic paste ,fry for a while and add peas.cook peas till tender,add all the fried vegetables and masalas to it.add curd and mix well,cover and simmer for few mins.turn off the the serving bowl spread 1 layer of rice,on top spread the vegetable gravy,sliced onions and some bread pieces.then again spread rice and on top bread and sliced onions.serve hot.


  1. rajastani people add gatte (special gram flour dumplings - steamed and then fried) also to Kabuli rice. i think what u have assumed to be fried bread would actually be "Gatte"

  2. Alpana - Kabuli has fried bread only. Gatte are not used in kabuli..

  3. HI! I'm from Jodhpur too..and in kabuli we use both gatte as well asbread... it's depends on what we choose!
