Bagara khana is a spiced rice delicacy prepared in Hyderabad, Telangana, India.[1] 'Bagar,' meaning tempering, is a plain Biryani recipe without any vegetables and masala powders. Bagara rice is also a popular rice dish in weddings or functions in Hyderabad apart from the famous vegetable dum biriyani. Vegetarians who do not eat hyderabadi biryani enjoy this dish.[2]


Long grained rice, dark spices, green chillies. Bagara rice pairs well with spicy curries like baghara baingan or dalcha.
