Corn Pulao


This is another copy cat version. Took this recipe from Nithya's kitchen. The recipe was too tasty and easy to make. Hats off Nithu.. Another credit goes to you!!!! As per the orignial version of the recipe.. Nithya has used Sweet corn and I used the normal corn. And the taste.. needless to say... Awesome is not the word!!


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


- 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.

I served this with potato fry and potato chips.
