Brown Basmati Rice with Ghee & Saffron

I love the smell of basmati rice. There isn’t any other rice quite like it. When you walk into the home of someone cooking it, you can usually look forward to something interesting, a one-pot dish paired with meat, like biryani made with chicken, dried plums, exotic spices and of course, fragrant basmati rice.

Between white and brown basmati, I really don’t taste any huge difference in flavor. Essentially,  you can just make your recipe the way you would normally.  You may even need to eat less of the brown rice because it’s more filling due to the higher fiber content.
