Ghee Rice


This is one of the easiest and quick option for a lunch/dinner. You can try this with any long variety of rice, but I prefer basmati rice. It is prepared with ghee as well as spices. You can serve it with any veg/nonveg gravy.


  • Basmati rice – 1 cup
  • Ghee – 2 tablespoon
  • Onion – 1, thinly sliced
  • Cinnamon – 1 inch piece
  • Cardamon – 1
  • Cloves – 2
  • Bay leaf -1
  • Star anise -1
  • Cashew, Raisins – a few


  1. Soak basmati rice in water for 10 minutes, drain the water and keep it aside.
  2. Add onion and fry till they turn golden brown and keep it aside.
  3. Heat ghee in a pan, add all the spices,(cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaf and star anise). Now add the drained rice and fry for a few minutes.
  4. Add 2 cups of boiling water, needed salt and cook till rice is done. Garnish with fried onion,cashew nuts and raisins.
