Eerulli Chitranna | How to make Onion Seasoned Rice

Eerulli Chitranna

Eerulli Chitranna is an interesting version of seasoned rice made with onions and spices. This is an easy dish to make from Karnataka.

I came to know about this dish when I was searching for something else when I came about this word of Eerulli to refer onions. I know we call it Ullipaya, Errakedda in Telugu, and it didn’t strike me to check what it’s called in other languages.

Anyway, I read that there is a dish called Eerulli Chitranna that’s made in Karnataka and that was my dish! I searched and came up with many different dishes that were not related to this, though this was more like it.

Eerulli Chitranna is a simple form of seasoning steamed rice with chilies and other dals to make it little more interesting. I made it for our lunch to be paired with a kootu and it was a good satisfying meal.

Eerulli Chitranna is my pick for E in the AtoZ Biryani/Pulao/Khichdi Festival that’s happening for the April Mega Marathon, where I have opted to make 26 Rice dishes. If you are interested to know what I am doing for E in C4AS, go ahead check it out!

  1. A to Z is all about playing with alphabets and resulting in a frantic research and challenge and you sure a master at it .
    Glad you could find a perfect rice dish with E , which looks lovely, and very satisfying kinds .

  2. Very flavorful, right? Growing up, this was the rice my mom used to make with leftover rice as a breakfast. Those days we never cringed at eating flavored rice for breakfast. Try feeding this to the kids now and we see a host of emotions and dialogues 🙂

  3. I discovered this last mega BM when I made eerulli dosa. This is how we learn new languages!! Lovely pick for E. So flavorful and delicious!!

  4. I would never be able to come with such names :-). This is similar to the tadka rice which we do, but with the addition of onions. A good way to add some flavour and crunch to the recipe.
