Pour 100 gm of ghee into it.
Also pour 1 litre of water along with it.
Put a pinch of artificial colour (Preferably yellow).
Close the vessel with a lid – let the water and contents boil (for 2 minutes) in high flame.
Once the water is boiling, put ½ kg of basmati rice.
Stir gently for 5 seconds.
Close the lid and let contents boil for 30 seconds in high flame.
Once again open the lid, stir gently for 10 seconds.
Then close the lid – turn the flame to low (Simmer).
Let the rice get cooked for approximately 10 to 12 minutes in low flame.
After 10 minutes check if the rice got cooked. Then turn off the burner.
Keep the cooked rice aside.
