  • In a big container, pour milk and sweetened condensed milk & wait until it boils
  • In the meantime mix rice with ghee using your hand. Please do this without washing the rice with water.
  • Pour rice into the hot boiling milk and stir continuously
  • Cook the mixture on low heat until the rice gets cooked, this might take up to 30 mins
