posted 17 Nov 2012, 11:23 by Rajmi Arun
Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Big Corn Cob - 1 (remove the cobs from the corn)
Water - 2 cups
Sambar Onion (the small vareity) - 1/2 cup (diced into small pieces)
Ginger garlic paste - 1/4 tbsp
Curd - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Pepper - 1/4 tsp
Green Chilly - 2
Masala Powder - 1/2 tsp or 1 each of bay leaf, cinnamon sticks, 2 cardomom

Wash and soak the rice for 1/2 an hour. Clean the corn and soak for 2 hours till it becomes soft and tender. In a hard bottom pan add 1 tbsp ghee (oil for diet conscious), and add onion, bay leaf, cinnamon, cardomo, ginger garlic paste and green chillies. Saute it well. Drain the rice and corn and add it to the pan without any water. Add curd, salt and water and pressure cook it. Allow for two whistles.

If doing it in the pan itself, add 2 1/2 cups of water and close the lid (mix it well inbetween every few mins so that the rice doesnot settle down).

To give more flavour and colour, one can add carrot, beans and peas also along with corn.

Decorate it with finely chopped coriander leaves.
