Tahri (also tehri, tehari or tayari) is a yellow rice dish in Awadhi cuisine. Spices are added to plain cooked rice for flavor and colour. In one version of Tehri, potatoes are added to the rice. This dish is most popular in Gulbarga, Hyderabad and Nanded.
Tehri and tahari are variants of the name given to the vegetarian version of biryani. It can also be prepared with various types of meats and green peas.
