Baby corn pulao recipe
Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Prep Time: 30 mins   
Cook time: 25 mins   
Serves: 2

·         Basmati rice     1 cup
·         baby corn         10-12
·         Onion  1
·         Coconut milk(thin)       2 cups
·         Bay leaf            1
·         Turmeric powder         as needed
·         Cinnamon         1 inch piece
·         Cloves  2 or 3
·         Ealchi  2
·         Salt       As needed
·         Oil/ghee           2-3 tblsp
To Grind
·         coriander leaves         1/2 bunch
·         Garlic,small variety    4-5
·         Ginger             1/4 inch piece
·         Grated coconut(optional)       2 tblsp
·         Green chilli     4
·         Garam masala powder           1/4 tsp


  • Soak rice for at least  1/2 hour before preparing any rice dishes like this. The more you soak, the more soft the gains will be and you can use less water ratio for cooking it.
  • Cut onion to length wise and cut baby corn into bite size pieces. Pressure  upto 3 whistles. If you slice them thinly into circles or diagonally, then no need to pressure cook.
  • Grind all the ingredients under "to grind" table to a smooth paste with less water.
  • If you are cooking direct in pressure cooker,heat ghee/oil in the cooker and add the whole spices-bay leaf,cinnamon,elachi and cloves.Then add the onions,fry till pinkish,then add the baby corn,ground masala and fry till raw smell disappears.Add the soaked rice and fry for a minute.
  • Then add coconut milk( I used ready-made coconut milk) and bring it to boil.(Coconut milk should not be too thick or too thin,if its thick then dilute to adjust it to make 2 cups- you can reduce the water quantity to 1 & 1/2 cups.). Addsalt and mix well and cook covered in lowest flame,without pressure regulator for 8-10 minutes.
·         Now pulav is ready and serve hot with onion raita or raita of your choice!
