Spice flavored ghee rice is a simple and easy dinner recipe. This rice dish goes well with chicken or vegetable stew.
Soak the rice in water for an hour. In a large pan, heat ghee, add the cashew nuts, raisins and roast until the cashew nut color changes to golden brown and raisins become plump. Remove cashew nuts and raisins using slotted spoon and keep aside until needed.
Add the cinnamon stick, cloves, cardamom, bay leaves and saute until nice aroma comes out.
Add the cumin seeds, sliced onion, green chilies and cook until onion becomes soft.
Add the soaked rice and saute for a minute. Add water, salt and mix well. Bring it to boil, cover and cook until the water gets absorbed by rice completely. Garnish with roasted cashew nuts, raisins, fried onions and mix well.
