This Pressure Cooker Ghee Rice toasts the rice in delicious Homemade Ghee and will be ready to eat in less than 15 minutes! Imagine that. 🙂
Making rice in a Pressure Cooker, is not only easy, it is lightening fast. Whether you use a sauce pan on the stove or your favorite Rice Maker, you are going to be waiting about 20 minutes for white rice. Imagine making White Rice in your Pressure Cooker in just minutes!
Pressure Cooker Ghee Rice is so easy and without any fuss or standing over the stove!
It’s really simple. Rice, Pressure/Slow Cooker Simple Ghee, Salt and Pressure Cooker Bone Broth, or water! Make sure you use equal amounts of rice and liquid! A “rice cup” is just 6 oz, so measure accordingly.
A coffee cup can be any size, right? You would not use your favorite coffee cup to measure and assume it is a standard 8 oz dry or wet measuring cup. The coffee cup I use in the morning holds 10 oz of liquid. Okay, so, now you now. A “rice” cup is just that…a vessel for measuring rice.
If you want to cook your rice at the same time and in the same pot as your meal, check our my Pressure Cooker Perfectly Cooked Pot in Pot Rice for the recipe and timing.
If you want to use Brown Rice, you will need to increase the water and the cook time.
It is always important to get your Pressure Cooker cooking pot really hot before adding your fat. This will help to make a Stainless Steel Pot, non-stick! Once the pot heats up, add in some Ghee. If you would like to make your own, Homemade Pressure/Slow Cooker Simple Ghee, check out my super simple recipe.
To add a delicious depth of flavor, add the rice to the hot Ghee in the Pressure Cooker cooking pot. Ghee is really great to use a higher temperatures and won’t start to burn like butter. Butter is not good to use with higher temperatures.
It’s why you will see that Olive Oil is used in combination with Butter to get a nice flavor. Ghee on the other hand, can be used alone to stir fry, since it can take the heat better. Using a Spatula, mix the rice around the cooking pot to toast the rice in the Ghee for a few minutes.
Use a Low Sodium Chicken or Vegetable Broth or even Fresh Water, if you prefer a purer Rice flavor. You might be pairing this Pressure Cooker Ghee Rice with my Pressure Cooker Indian Butter Chicken recipe and want to make sure the yummy flavors of the Butter Chicken, will come through when you pour the Sauce onto your Ghee Rice. If you have some Homemade Pressure Cooker Stock/Broth that would be even more delicious. Any flavor of Stock is fine to use.
Try paring this Pressure Cooker Ghee Rice with my Pressure Cooker Chinese Simmered Chicken recipe! Yummy!
Now, as you have noticed by now, this is not the traditional fragrant Indian Ghee Rice, with all the delicious seasonings, but it is a rice that my husband and I love so much and I wanted to share this with you.
