After the broccoli with coconut, another recipe from the cookbook ‘Sri Lanka Food’ from Sarogini. And again another perfect side dish, this Aromatic Ghee Rice. I simply love rice, especially when prepped with a good seasoning or other flavors added.
This Ghee fragrant rice can be perfectly paired with the Broccoli with Coconut, Stuffed Scrambled Eggs, Easy Thanksgiving Stuffing, Sajoer Green Beans or with a Veggie Burger Omelet. Looking for Christmas recipes, then check out Christmas Food Around the World.
It’s a really flavorful rice combination and we loved it. The recipe was easy to follow. The broth to use wasn’t specified, so I used garden herb broth. Since I didn’t have onions anymore, I used onion powder.
