nei choru recipe with step by step photos – aromatic savory rice dish made with rice, ghee and spices. this recipe is a malabar special and from the kerala cuisine. in malayalam ‘nei’ or ‘ney’ means ghee and ‘choru’ means rice.

sharing the way i prepare ghee rice at times to go with a veg stew, kerala style dal (parippu) or any south indian veg gravy. this is a very simple recipe and takes your simple meal to a different level. rather than having a plain steamed rice, some more work and you get a fragrant and delicious ghee rice that goes with any dal recipe. i have also posted another easy version of ghee rice and you can also check it here → ghee rice recipe.

for the authentic version of this recipe, do use seeraga samba rice (kaima rice or jeerakasala rice). if you do not have this variety of rice, then use basmati rice as the next option.

serve the malabar special ghee rice with any coconut based curry or potato stew or stew of your choice. you can even serve it with any dal recipes like dal fry, dal tadka, moong dal tadka etc.
