Sweet Corn Pulao

Sweet corn pulav6

Sweet corn is one other ingredient which falls in 'most favorite' category for a lot of people. And yes!!! I am one among them.

As soon as I saw corn at home my mind started dreaming of masala corn, roasted corn, butter corn, corn pulao, corn soup, grilled corn etc etc.. the list goes on and on. :) Finally after a lot of fight between the heart and mind, I decided what my tongue wanted. It was corn pulao this time :)

There are loads of ways you can make corn pulao and this is one super good version of it :) I simply loved it and the aroma spread across the house in fraction of a second pulling all of them right to the dining table. :)

Here is my version of sweet corn pulao just for you :)

Sweet corn pulao

Ingredients:

Rice - 1 cup
Corn - 1 1/2 cups
Onion - 1 large
Bay leaf - 1
Cinnamon - 1/4 inch piece
Cloves - 2
Water - 2 cups

To grind -

Cashew nuts - 10
Tomato - 1
Ginger - 1/4 inch
Garlic - 4 pods
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Green chillies - 3
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 1/4 inch piece
Cloves - 2

Method:

Cook corn and keep it aside. Wash rice and soak in water for a while. Slice the onions into very thin slices.

Grind Cashew nuts, tomato, ginger, garlic, coriander leaves, green chillies, garam masala, cinnamon and cloves together into a fine paste adding very little water to it.

Take 4 tsps of oil in a pressure pan and add the cinnamon, clove and bay leaf to it. Saute for few seconds and add the onions to it. Saute till they become transparent. Now pour in the ground mixture and mix well for few mins. Strain the water away from the rice and add it to the pan along with cooked corn. Saute it for another few minutes. Finally add salt and 2 cups of water to it and cook until 3 whistles.

Sweet corn pulao is ready to serve.

You can serve this along with onion raitha or potato chips. :)

Enjoy eating :)

Note:

You can replace coriander leaves with mint leaves to have a minty flavored corn pulao.

If you like your pulao spicy, add few tsps of white pepper to it.

Hi Nits,

I never had a dish made of corn. All I remember about corn is the one I get along with the stick roasted from the person who sells it in the thela.

A dish made of corn is interesting.
