Guchchi Pullao

An exotic rice dish made with morells (Guchchi)
Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Vegetarian Serving: 6 Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes after soaking


  • Basmati Rice 2 cups (360 g)
  • Guchchi (Morells), soaked 2-3 hours 25 g
  • Ghee (Clarified Butter) 2 tbsp (30 g)
  • Kala Zeera (Black Cumin) 2 tsp
  • Dalchini (Cinnamon), broken 1/4 tsp
  • Onions, sliced thin cup (125 g)
  • Salt 2 tsp or to taste
  • Few drops of lemon juice
  • Fried onions for garnish


  • Clean the rice, and wash till the water runs clear, and soak for an hour.
  • Discard the water of the guchchis and wash well (they often have a lot of grit in them) and leave to drain.

  • Heat ghee and add the zeera, dalchini and then the onions and saute till the onions are a golden brown.

  • Add the drained rice and guchchis, stir fry a few times to mix well and add 3 cups of water and the salt.

  • Bring the mixture to a boil uncovered. Sprinkle a few drops of lemon juice, cover and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, by which time the water in the rice should be absorbed.

  • Serve hot garnished with the fried onions.
