Doodhi Kofta Rice

Doodhi Kofta Rice and Fruit chaat our Sunday Sunny Day lunch

Steamed Doodhi Ke Kofte  had to be used up before we left for the tour. On that Sunday fried the kofte and made this finger licking rice. This accompanied with a salt and chili sprinkled fruit salad is one of the best summery lunches believe me.

Its a simple rice cooked in the pressure cooker except the frying of the koftas. I used the sona masuri rice but basmati would notch it up to a level higher.


1 cup rice
1 onion
2 tomatoes
3-4 garlic pods
1 green chili
handful of chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 tablespoon of oil

Begin with deep frying the Doodhi Kofte. Keep aside.

Then in the pressure cooker heat oil. Fry the onions to red. Add the tomatoes and bring them down to a paste on high heat. Add the chopped garlic, green chili and the turmeric and red chili powder. Mix add the rice. Fry in masala for 2 mins. This should give the rice a glaze. Add the fried koftas at this point and top up with water twice the quantity of rice.

Close the lid and pressure cook for 2 whistles. Put off the heat and cool. Open cooker and give a mix to the rice. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve.

The rice is tangy from the tomato and smell delicious of the complex garam masala. Enjoy it with curd, raita and a papad roasted to perfection will do the no harm as a crackler on the side.


Thank You for taking the time to leave your thoughts here.
