Quick N Easy Ghee Rice

Most of us will try to make easy breezy dishes whenever we feel so lazy to cook up na, sometimes its happens to me..Fortunately some of our blogger buddies have best and quick recipes to try and taste, while going through Nag's Edible Garden,i got hooked to this easy ghee rice which was totally quick and easy to get ready..Immediately i tried making them for our Sunday's lunch and served along with fried chicken drumsticks, both together turned out lunch super filling and fabulous,thanks a ton to Nags for sharing this easy at the same time rich and delicious ghee rice, its truly very quick and we loved it..This ghee rice goes directly to Jayasri's Blogger's Marathon - Edible Garden..

Quick Ghee Rice

1cup Basmati rice
1+1/2cups Water
2tbsp Ghee
1no Onion(chopped)
2nos Cardamom
2nos Cloves
10nos Peppercorns
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
Chopped mint leaves

Wash and soak the basmati rice for 15minutes..Heat the ghee in a pan, fry the cardamoms,cloves,peppercorns and chopped onions for few seconds, add immediately the ginger garlic paste and stir until the raw smell goes away, now add the soaked rice, fry for few seconds and add the water, transfer the rice to rice cooker..

Once the rice gets cooked, add the chopped mint leaves and serve with raitas or any spicy side dish..
