furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the popular ghee rice kurma combo meal recipe. firstly, the ghee rice prepared for this combo is made with basmati rice. basmati rice is an ideal and perfect choice which makes it non-sticky and separated. you may use other types of rice like sona masuri, but the rice to water proportion can be different. secondly, the kurma recipe is mildly spicy and is made on purpose as it should not overpower the ghee rice. if you need it spicier, you may need to add more red chillies. lastly, i have prepared the ghee rice by cooking the rice with ghee and water. you may also prepare the ghee rice with leftover cooked rice by sauteing it with ghee and spices.
