Corn Pulao

Here is a quick rice dish you can put together when you have some hungry people at home. In Kuwait there are so many “Buttered Corn” stores that it is a common habit for anyone to get themselves a cup of buttered corn when anyone goes shopping. I have loved corn from the time I was a little kid, and the other day, I bought a few cans to make some soup, and had 1 left in the pantry. Needed a rice idea, and decided to make some Corn Pulao

I have mentioned Pulao Masala in the recipe, if you have none, you can add some briyani masala or garam masala

Summary

    Ingredients

    1 can Corn :
    2 cups Rice : – cooked
    1 large Onion : diced
    2 Green chillies : slit lengthwise
    1 tbsp Ginger paste :
    1 tbsp Garlic paste :
    1/4 tsp Cumin seeds :
    3 Cloves :
    3 Cardamom :
    Cinnamon stick : a small piece
    1 Bay leaf :
    2 tbsps Pulao Masala :
    Oil
    to taste Salt
    Freshly Chopped Coriander – for garnish

    Steps

    1. I began by adding the cumin seeds, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon stick and bay leaf to some heated oil on medium heat and got all the amazing flavor mix in with the oil
    2. Next add the onions, green chillies and ginger and garlic pastes and saute until the onions are soft
    3. The 2 tbsp of briyani masala go in next
    4. Cook until the raw smell of the masala is gone
    5. Our main ingredient goes in finally – corn
    6. Since it is out of a can, it should be cooked already
    7. Give this a few minutes before you add in the cooked rice
    8. Toss gently so that the rice does not get mushed
    9. Add the required amount of salt
    10. Garnish and serve hot!
