    Ghee Rice

    (Neichoru)


    Ghee rice is something I end up doing quite often when my daughter was small. Its quite easy and kids love to eat.  I also use oil instead of ghee for us.

    • Pulao rice 500 grams
    • Onions 1
    • cloves 2
    • cinnamon 4 cm piece
    • cardamom 2 pods
    • ghee 4 tbsp
    • salt to taste



    Clean, wash and drain the rice.
    Slice the onion.
    Heat the ghee.
    Add the onion, cinnamon and cardamom.
    Add the rice and fry for 3-4 minutes.
    Add boiling water (double the quantity of rice) and salt. 
    Cook till the rice is soft and the water is absorbed .
    Serve hot with mutton or chicken curry.
