Ghee Rice


  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 8 cashew (halves)
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 1 bay leaf 
  • 1-inch cinnamon
  • 2 pods cardamom
  • 5 cloves
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ onion (sliced)
  • 1 green chili (slit)
  • 1 cup basmati rice (soaked for 20 minutes)
  • 2 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan, roast the cashews and raisins until they turn golden brown, and keep them aside.
  • Saute the bay leaf, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and pepper in a pressure cooker.
  • Add onion, chili (I don’t add it for my daughter), and saute until the onions turn golden brown. I sometimes add chopped vegetables like carrots, beans, and peas especially when I am preparing them for my daughter.
  • Add the soaked basmati rice and roast it for a minute, add water, 1 tsp salt, and allow it to pressure cook for 2 whistles.
  • Add the fried nuts and mix them well.

  The ghee rice is ready to eat. We usually savor it with some homemade curry!
