Step 7:

• Now, lower the flame to the lowest setting, close the lid of the pressure cooker, and place a bowl of water on top of it. This process helps create gentle steam inside the cooker.

• Cook the rice on low flame for 7 to 9 minutes, allowing it to steam and absorb all the flavors.

• After 10 minutes, open the lid, and using a fork, gently fluff the rice from the corners to ensure even distribution.

Side dishes that work well with Ghee rice

Interesting Facts:

• Cow ghee is considered to be healthier than other types of ghee. It contains fewer calories than buffalo ghee, making it a preferred choice for those watching their calorie intake.

• The high smoking point of ghee means that it doesn’t oxidize easily and release free radicals, which are very harmful to your health. Most oils with a high smoking point like canola and soybean oil, on the other hand, are normally hydrogenated to add to their stability and therefore are quite bad for you.

• The MCTS (medium-chain triglycerides) present in ghee are utilized very quickly by your body as energy and are only stored as ‘fat’ or in reserve if you over-consume in terms of calorific value.
