Dear Shahana
Thank you so much for this dish I am going to make it this weekend when some people are coming. I like that 1/2 cup of ghee...I dont like ghee rice recipe with 1 to 2 tsp ghee.
Have a nice week

Dear Shahana, awesome Clicks and ur ghee rice looks perfect. I make it a lot as well. I agree with Ushnish, since its GHee rice, got to add a little more ghee and not 1 to 2 tsp. I have nominated you for a Kreativ blogger award . Please come visit my blog and see how it works and pick up your award. Thank you.
