Bhugha Chaanwara

Bhugha Chaanwara - A Sindhi rice made with caramelized onions and with whole spices which is quite popular among Sindhis..Traditionally this recipe is made on occasions and can be served usually with Sai Bhaji..It seems this Sindhi rice is always a hit anytime whenever its served and this rice dish tastes fantastic even simply with pickle or raita..I crossed this Sindhi rice at Alka's Sindhi Rasoi and i wanted to give a trial to this rice as this rice goes for simple and easy process, also its a complete meal and a one pot meal..Eventhough green peas is optional in this rice, i went for green peas  and this rice tastes wonderful and delicious..This rice gets ready very easily and we enjoyed it having with simple onion raita..
