Ghee Rice/ Neyyi choru

Ghee rice is simple recipe which I used to prepare for lunch in Sunday‘s with spicy gravy. I learnt this recipe from my friend in baku. I used to prepare this rice with curd or coconut milk. When I heard of preparing with only water I was happy because it is not very heavy for lunch very light dish. Who ever is cautious about the health and fitness can have this rice instead of heavy ones. Have a look
