When you want the focus to be on the subzi, then this is the best choice for your Main Course .

Soothing yet flavourful, the Ghee Rice combines beautifully with elaborate Subzis / Curries and Dals / Kadhis enhancing their appeal and giving them the attention they deserve.

However, the best part about Ghee Rice is that it tastes just as wonderful with a simple dal or everyday subzi so you can prepare it on any hurried day too.
