Bhuga Chawar | Sindhi Bhuga Chawara

Bhuga Chawara

Bhuga Chawara from the Sindhi cuisine means Rice with Onions Browned Onion Rice. This is a quick one pot meal where you saute onions with whole spices and cook the rice in the same pan.

Bhugha Chaanwara is much similar to other ghee rice or masala annam we make, except for adding a few more extra spices. In our Andhra version of Masala Annam that Athamma makes, we brown the onions too, though a paste of mint, coriander, and green chilies ground and added.

Bhuga chawara is prepared by simply roasting onions, spices and cooking the rice in the pan. If you want the rice to be done even quicker, then you can simply add fried onions to the pan. This is mostly served with Sai Bhaji and that’s what I prepared too. Everybody loved this combination and this will surely be repeated.

I got this recipe from Vaishali and she writes that regular everyday Bhuga Chawara is just a few whole spices, they make it little more elaborate when they have guests visiting. I made this rice with sai bhaji and aloo roast.

  1. I have realized while exploring Indian rice dishes during the past few months that each regional cuisine in India has some sort of basic version of pulao with minor variations. Bhuga chawara must have tasted good with those classic side dishes.

  2. Bhuga Chawara are one of the basic recipes in a Sindhi kitchen and I must say that you have made it perfectly and with the typical combo of Sai Bhaji !
    Glad you all enjoyed the meal :))

  3. I remember making Bhuga Chawara years back, and even I made sai bhaji for the side. This is a delicious combination and you have made it perfect. With aloo roast, the spread is too tempting.

  4. Never heard of this, but sounds interesting. The brown onion must be definitely adding to flavour. I am Keen on trying the one you said where you brown the onions in the paste.the taste must be something different
