Burnt Garlic And Dried Red Chilli Flavoured Rice

Made this burnt garlic and dried whole red chilli flavoured rice yesterday, a quick simple yet delish and nutritious dish. I have constantly been searching for some recipe which will alleviate the torture of staying for long in the kitchen when this heatwave continues unabated and came across this easy peasy one. I added some soyabean nuggets and red bell peppers to augment the nutritional value and color. Hope you all will like the dish and try it your way......

Burnt Garlic And Dried Red Chillies Flavoured Rice



  • 1 cup long grained aromatic basmati rice
  • 8-10 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 2 onions chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper chopped
  • 3 whole dried red chillies roughly torn to small pieces
  • 1 cup nutri-nuggets( soyabean nuggets) can be substitued by boiled shredded chicken also if you want a non-veg variation
  • White oil as per requirement
  • Salt n sugar to taste

Burnt Garlic and Dried Red Chillies Flavoured Rice


Wash and soak the basmati rice in water for 10-15 minutes. Soak soya nuggets in hot water with some salt for 10-15 minutes. In the mean time heat oil in a wok and add chopped garlic and red chillies. Wait until the color of the garlic changes to deep brown. Now add the onions and fry till golden. Add the red bell peppers, saute for a few minutes, add rice, salt and sugar. Add two cups of water, cover with a lid and cook it on low flame. When the rice is almost done, add the nuggets squeezing out the excess water. Mix it in the rice and let it get cooked for another 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and give it some standing time before serving. Goes really well with Daal Pancharatna or any yellow daal tadka or any chicken/mutton dishes....and if you are in no mood to cook anything more just enjoy it just like this.....
