Spicy Corn Pulav

Print Friendly and PDF
This is a pulav which I tried from her book sometime back and it was quite good to give a try again and I am sure it is definitely a party kind of dish.Still it is taking time for me to settle down in the new house and as my inlaws are here with us now, I am not much into blogging and even my posting is also slowed down.As I do not want to extend my break I am posting this yummy pulav which is sitting in my drafts and waiting for its turn to get posted.


Ingredients:

1 Cup Basmati rice
3/4 cup American corn(frozen)

2 medium Onions sliced

1 Biriyani leaf

1" Cinnamon

2 black cardamoms

3 laung

10 cashewnuts

1 pinch saffron

1 tbsp warm milk

1 tsp chopped coriander

1 tbsp ghee

salt to taste


To grind:
1 onion,chopped
4 pods of garlic

1/2 " ginger,chopped

1/4 tsp turmeric

1 tbsp Coriander powder

1/4 tsp Garam masala
1 tsp red chilli powder



Method:
  • Wash rice and soak it for 10 minutes.
  • Grind all the ingredients mentioned under To grind to a fine mixture.
  • Mix saffron with milk and keep it aside for 10 mins.
  • Heat a tsp of ghee in a kadai fry drained rice and fry until the water is evaporated,approx for 2 mins and remove it aside.
  • In the pressure cooker heat a tbsp of ghee again add laung,cardamom,biriyani leaf,cinnamon to it and fry for a minute.
  • Add sliced onions to it and fry until it turns brown in color.Adding a pinch of sugar/salt during this process will quickly fry the onions to brown color.
  • Add the ground mixture to it and fry until ghee separates from the mixture.Add corn to it and fry for another couple of minutes.
  • Add slightly roasted rice to it and give a nice stir and pour water in the ratio of 1:2(1-rice:2-water) and add enough salt to it and mix and cover it with the lid and pressure cook for 1 whistle and simmer the flame for 8-10 mins.
  • After the pressure is released open the lid add the soaked saffron to it and add chopped coriander,cashewnuts(fried in ghee ) to it and stir.

Serve it hot with raitha and papad.I served mine with kala chana masala and onion raitha.
