Tahri (yellow Potato Rice.)

Tahri yellow potatoe rice

This is an Asian style Rice. this is a very popular rice made and pairs well with kebabs and raita or yoghurt. You can make this very quickly and also looks really nice. and the taste, well I’m sharing this with you so that speaks for itself. Benefits are a lot because the rice is yellow because of Tumeric and we all know how good Tumeric is for us.


  • Rice 400g-500g
  • 1 medium onion(sliced)
  • 1 big size tomato(sliced)
  • 3 large or 5 small potatoes( cut into big pieces)
  • 2 tsp crushed red chilli
  • 1 tbsp cumin powder
  • 2 whole black pepper
  • 2 cloves
  • 2 small Cinnamon pieces
  • salt 2 tbsp or to taste
  • half cup oil
  • 1.5 litres boiled hot water


Wash and soak the rice for at least 15 min. Pour oil in a pot, let it warm up on high flame then add the onions until they start getting slightly brown from the outside. Add in whole black pepper, cloves and cinnamon pieces. let simmer for 2 more minutes put the flame on medium and add the tomatoes and simmer until they start to get a bit tender. then goes in, the herbs and mix  until everything is incorporated. pour in the water and when water comes to boil put in the rice and potatoes and when half of the water has evaporated then cover the pot and put on low flame and leave until the water has dried. Now turn off the flame and keep it covered for further 10 minutes. Viola!! simple as that. Can be served with Kebabs, Raita and if you are like me, then pair it with Achaar.

Hope you like this and let me know, what you thought of it.
