Nei Soru | Ghee Rice

DSC_1163

Some dishes are so simple and yet so flavourful, like this Ghee rice or Nei Soru. It is an easy and quick dish to make and the daughter has been raving about it ever since. She wants to eat the ghee rice nearly every day and I am so tempted to give in.

All you need is rice, ghee and some spices. You can garnish it with some cashews that makes it all the more delicious. I made it with basmati rice but you can make it with regular rice as well if you wish.
