(Tumeric Rice)
Been long since I posted some Sindhi recipe, this is a simple yellow rice, just to add some color to the food and get the benefits of turmeric. Cooked like how you would normally make rice just with a pinch of turmeric.

This is normally eaten with Sai Bhaji,Varyoon patata waagan ji bhajji, Mukandar Wadi

1 cup rice
2 cups water
pinch of turmeric
1 tsp ghee
salt to taste


  1. Wash the rice and soak for half an hour.
  2. In a pan, add the rice, water, turmeric, ghee and salt.
  3. Bring the water to a boil.
  4. Once the water boild, lower the heat and cover the pan.
  5. Cook till the water is evaporated or rice cooked.

Note: Cook the rice how you would normally cook rice, in a pressure cooker, rice cooker, or with more water where you throw out the water once the rice is cooked.
