Ghee Rice







Serving Size: 4


Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sona masoori / basmati rice
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • Whole spices: 2 bay leaves, 1 stick cinnamon, 3 cloves, 3 green cardamom
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 4 cups water
  • Salt
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 5 tbsp ghee
Method:
  1. Wash and soak rice. (Sona masoori - 10 minutes; Basmati rice - 30 minutes)
  2. Heat ghee in a large sauce pan and add all the whole spices.
  3. After few seconds add chopped onion and then ginger. Fry till soft. (no need to brown)
  4. Add the measured water, salt and vinegar. Wait till the water starts to boil.
  5. Add soaked rice to the water and stir.
  6. Place the lid and cook on medium heat for about 8 to 10 minutes.
  7. Once the water has dried up, gently stir and loosen the sides so that all the trapped steam in rice escapes. Make 3 dents in the rice and again place the lid and cook on lowest heat for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and gently lift up the rice so that bottom portion comes on top.
  8. Cover and let the rice rest for 10 minutes before serving.
  9. Serve hot with any curry.
