Ghee Rice must be the simplest dish one can make, especially as a meal to go with spiced gravies. I normally make this for nonveg gravies and spicy veg kurmas. Since I only post Vegetarian in this blog, I will only link to the Ghee Rice that is done in a Rice Cooker and a regular pan.
This recipe was shared by the MW Chef I talk about. She made this with such ease you never knew it got cooked too. I tried it and it comes done like a breeze. Though as I say cooking Rice in a Microwave takes time so it is not exactly Quick though it is very easy! Still, when compared to microwave cooking this rice is quick.
