Ghee Rice

Ghee Rice/ Nei Choru is one of my favorite. I had guests coming over and I made it with 2 kg of rice. However I am cutting the ingredients short to make ghee rice with 2 cups of rice. Lets hop into the yummy recipe. The side dish for this was chicken Manchurian (recipe to be updated super soon). Hope you will like it too.
