I do love my rice to the core, be it any type of rice/pulav/ biryani / pilaf / khichdi, Fried Rice and list goes on. Sometimes I even make flatbreads with rice. 😉

I love all things rice, no matter whether its a brown rice, pre-fluffed rice, regular long grain rice, short grain rice, fragrant basmati rice, jasmine rice, or broken rice. Basically, you just serve me any dish made with rice, and I would gobble it in no time.

The 3 main reasons why I love rice so much:

  1. Due to its carbs and starch, it makes me full fast. And at the same time, it is so light on the stomach and it gets digested fast. Thus it makes more space in my tummy. Sometimes I just wonder how satisfying a rice can be. And this way I can consume more delicacies later on. 😀
    Cooking rice is kind of cakewalk. Anyone can cook it. I just love to cook it.
    There are endless dishes we can make with simple and humble grain ‘Rice’.
  2. I eat rice often and that often comes at least thrice a week. And sometimes this rice love affair goes for the whole week. Sometimes I make simple dal chawal to keep my comfort zone calm. Other times I just make fried rice with leftovers.
  3. On the days when I am really hungry and in a hurry I simply go for pressure cooker rice. On other days when I have plenty of time then I surely make some biryani or pilaf.

I made this Tehri with some deluxe basmati rice because I surely adore Basmati rice. And why not? This fancy looking, palatial, fragrant and so delicately fluffed basmati rice can make anyone love them. Just check the video below and you will know for yourself.

What’s the difference between Biryani and Tahiri?

  1. The process of making tahiri/taheri is similar to making a pulao, and it tastes somewhere between a biryani and a pulao. Thus, you may call them sisters from different mothers.
  2. Taheri is a non-complex one pot recipe rice dish where the whole spices and vegetables are sauteed together and then cooked in a pan or a pressure cooker until cooked through and fluffy. Where biryani always contains a gravy. And then layered with layers of par-cooked meat or veggies and rice, and then it gets cooked for a longer time. Cooking biryani is sure a laborious task which needs love and patience, that’s why I prefer making biryani on the weekends.
  3. This rice dish of Taheri stays fresh for hours, so this can easily be packed in the lunch box along with some yogurt or raita and papad.
