Recipe for Broccoli Rice & Meat Casserole

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 1.5 hours
Serves: 4


  • Broccoli – 1 flower
  • Rice – ¾ cup
  • Any Minced Meat (ground meat) (Chicken / Mutton / Beef) – 250 gms
  • Onion – 1
  • Garlic – 3 cloves
  • Butter – 2 tbsp
  • All purpose flour (Maida) – 2 tbsp
  • Yogurt (Crd) – ¼ cup
  • Water/ Chicken Stock – 1 cup
  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Dried Parsley – ¾ tsp
  • Salt – 1 tsp
  • Red Pepper Flakes – ½ tsp
  • Crushed Black Peppercons – ½ tsp
  • Cheddar Cheese (Grated) – 1 cup


  1. Wash the rice. Wash the broccoli and chop it into tiny florets.
  2. Heat a big pot with 4-5 cups of water. Add some salt and add the washed rice.
  3. Cook for about 5 minutes till the rice is partially cooked. Add the broccoli and cook for another minute.
  4. Drain the excess liquid using a colander and keep aside.
  5. Heat butter in a big pot, add the chopped onions and garlic. Saute for a minute till it sweats.
  6. Add the minced meat, salt and crushed black pepper. Saute for 5-7 minutes till all the moisture dries up and the meat is cooked.
  7. Add the flour, mix together and cook for a minute.
  8. Add the yogurt, milk and water (or stock) to this. Keep stirring while it comes to a boil. The sauce starts thickening.
  9. Add red pepper flakes, dried parsley and half of the grated cheese. Also add the partially cooked rice and broccoli. Mix well and switch off.
  10. Transfer the mixture to a greased baking dish 8*8 square or a 12” round. Cover with an aluminium foil and cook in a 350 degree F (180 C) oven for about 20 minutes.
  11. Remove the foil, sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Cook uncovered for the next 20 minutes. The whole mixture turns golden brown and bubbly.
  12. Let the casserole rest for 5-10 minute before digging in.
