Prep Time Cook Time Serves



basmati rice   2 cup
onion   1 thinly sliced
bay leaves   2
turmeric powder   A small pinch
dhana jeera powder/coriander-cumin powder   1/2 tsp

4 cloves  
4 cardamom  


  • Wash and soak rice till ready to use.
  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Add sugar. Then add sliced onions with bay leaves. Keep stirring on a low flame till onions are brown. This is what will give the characteristic "brown" color to the brown rice. So make sure that it doesn't burn but is uniformly brown.
  • Roast the spices and crush them using mortar and pestle. Make sure they are not powdered.
  • Add crushed spices, turmeric powder, coriander-cumin seed powder and salt to the onions. Stir well.
  • Drain rice and add to the pressure cooker. Add 4 cups warm water
  • Increase the flame. Adjust salt. Bring to boil. As the water boils, close the lid of the pressure cooker. Put on the pressure. and reduce the flame. After 2 whistles, switch off the gas.
  • When the pressure drops completely, open the lid. Fluff the rice with a fork. Serve with Parsi Daal or Dhansaak.
