Imagine a’ semi-cold day’.A plate of piping hot steamed rice and a bowl of onion sambar,a large bowl of potato podimas.Drizzle a teaspoon of ghee over the steamed rice and now you are all set to enter the super delicious zone!!!Yes, this is an utterly delectable combo!!!Well,this goes well with not only steamed rice and sambar but with all other rice preparations too.

You need:
