Spicy Broken Rice / Khuder Bhat /বউ খুদি / খুদের ভাত / বউয়া

Bangladesh is the fourth-largest rice producer in the world. In the process of rice production it creates lots of broken rice (khud), so there are few recipes with khud ( broken rice) which is less expensive than rice. For that reason khud (broken rice) is more popular among poorer consumers. This typical recipe is specially served with Bhorta, dal chochchori, dim bhaja(egg omlet) etc. It is typically cooked in mustard oil but you can use any vegetable oil or mix match of mustard and other oil. Some add potato in it, so if you want to add potato, slice potato, fry with onion and rest of the process will be same. Now most important khud (broken rice) is not that available like other rice so if you don’t have khud (broken rice), soak any Aromatic rice (still

Bukhari Rice / Bukhari Polau

Bukhari Rice / Bukhari Polau

  Bukhari Rice / Bukhari Polau is easy to make, simple, and delicious. Bukhari rice is a Saudi Arabian speciality but also cooked in the UAE, and Pakistan.  It comes in many different colours (including red, white and mixed colour) and shapes; it can be cooked many different ways. I tried to give easy one considering Bangladeshi people taste buds. Usually paprika (non-spicy chilli which gives only colour) is used for this recipe. But I used our traditional chilli powder (which you can use more or less up to your taste). N.B.Though it is not a Bangladeshi recipe (breaking the trend), please don’t hate me for this.
