Step by Step Method
Wash your rice and soak in cold water for 30 minutes.
Start by melting the Ghee butter and add the vermicelli pasta.
Stir continuously to prevent the pasta burning and get an even browning.
You need to fry the pasta till dark brown.
Take the pot off the heat
And add the hot water.
Please be very careful not to burn yourself.
Adding water to very hot butter will cause small melted butter droplets to fly out of the pot.
Return the pot to the burner and add salt.
Taste the water and don't worry if it is a bit salty as the rice will absorb the salt.
Drain and add the rice to the boiling water and bring back to boil. Turn the heat to medium, cover and cook for ten minutes.
Check the rice at this point and stir it very gently.
Add a bit of boiling water if necessary.
Turn down the heat to as low as you can, cover and let the rice steam and finish cooking for another ten minutes.
Stir for the second time and serve.
No special items needed.
