Neychoru or Kerala Style Ghee rice is a very rich Pulao recipe that is absolutely tasty. You can make it in a pressure cooker at home or in a pan. Ghee rice is a traditional south Indian pulao recipe that uses jeerakasala rice or jeerai rice but can be made using basmati rice or even sela rice.

This rice recipe is a traditional recipes and uses dry fruits and raisins cooked together with ghee.

You can eat this simple pulao recipe with any vegetable curry or just serve it hot with curd. I love to eat my punjabi style rajma with Ghee Rice and it tastes yummy. If you are someone who loves jeera pulao or vegetable pulao then you would love to cook this easy Indian recipe.
