Bagara Rice

I would like to say this is a specialty of Hyderabad but you sure can enlighten me on this!I don't know if there are more versions of the same, but my friend makes it this way and I really like it!
2 cups Basmati, soaked in water for 15 min
10-15 Mint leaves
1 Medium Onion, Sliced thin
4 whole cardamoms
1 cinnamon stick
3 cloves
3 bay leaves
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tsp Ginger garlic paste
3 green chilies, slit vertically
2 tbsp oil
  • Heat oil in a pan and fry cumin seeds and chilies for a min
  • To this, add onions and cook till translucent
  • Stir in the spices-Cardamoms, Cinnamon stick, cloves, bay leaves and ginger garlic paste
  • Add Mint leaves and cook until the leaves are wilted
  • Pour in water (1 cup rice:1.5 cup water ratio) and bring it to a boil
  • Add rice till cooked and not soft
  • Serve it hot with curry or raita
