Ghee Rice

Ghee Rice is what we make for most of our Non-Veg curries. Very simple to make and yet tasty. As the curry is always quite spicy, the mildness of this ghee rice is easy for the stomach.

Ingredients Needed

Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Cloves - 3
Cinnamon - 1 inch
Cardomom - 2
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Green Cardamom - 2
Bay leaf - 1
Salt to taste
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Water - 3 cups

Method to make:

Clean Basmati rice in water once, max 2 times not more than that as it will break. Soak the rice for 15 mins, in the same water that you are going to use for cooking. This to make sure the minerals and vitamins are not lost.

Once 15 mins is done, drain the rice from water, keep the water aside. Please don't throw away the water, remember we are going to use the same water for cooking.

Heat a pan with Ghee and add the bay leaves, cloves, cinnamon, and cardamom and cumin seeds.

Then add the basmati rice, gently stir it so that it gets coated with ghee.

Add 3 cups of water and simmer it until the rice cooks. It takes about 15 mins to cook.

A simple rice dish to enjoy with your choice of curry.

I am sending this over to Sharmi for Jihva for Ingredients : Rice.
