Ghee rice and gravy  always makes a sumptous meal at parties or on weekends and family get togethers. I always prefer the rice dishes to be prepared in a rice cooker as it is perfectly cooked and the heat is retained, but it is a personal choice. In all my recipes, I am giving the traditional method of cooking,but you can easily switch it over to the rice cooker after you saute  it in a wok.

For the rice

  • 2 cups long grain rice
  • 1 cup onion slit length wise
  • 1 cup peas
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon
  • 4 cloves
  • 4 cardamom
  • 2 green chillies slit lengthwise
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • cashewnuts and raisins
  • salt



  •   Wash the rice and keep aside.
  • Take ghee in a pressure pan and add the spices,cumin and  green chilli.
  • Add the onions and saute till light pink.
  • Then add the peas and saute for a while.
  • Then add the rice and stir fry for sometime. At this stage,you can change the contents to a rice cooker and add salt and water to it. Otherwise,continue to step 4.
  • Add five cups of water and salt to it.  A little bit of lime juice creates wonders.
  • Allow to cook until one whistle.
  • Garnish with cashew and raisins sauted in ghee.

Serve with curry. Happy Cooking!
