Baby Corn Pulao | Babycorn Recipes

Babycorn Pulav
This recipe was sitting in my drafts from almost eight months and I finally decided to post it now. This is a very simple pulao which is prepared with baby corns. The recipe is very similar to my Vegetable pulao recipe just with the difference being that  I added coconut milk here instead of water.

I have mentioned many times earlier about my love for baby corns and this pulao is definitely one of my favorite recipes with baby corns.The slight crunch and sweetness of  baby corns adds a nice taste and texture to the pulao.
Pulavs and Rice Varieties are ideal for lunch boxes as they are very easy to eat.You can just pair it with raita and papad and a wholesome meal is ready.I even prefer to make pulavs over the weekends as they are not only easy to make but also serve as a simple and delicious meal.

Notes:
  1. Baby corns can be replaced with fresh corn kernels or the corn cob cut into 1" round pieces or soya chunks in the recipe.
  2. You do not need to use thick coconut milk in the recipe.If the coconut milk is very thick you can dilute with little water to get 2 cups of coconut milk of medium thickness.

I usually do not plan in advance when I click pics. I usually select the the props just before taking the pics based on whatever I feel would go with the food. This post was one of those where I enjoyed clicking more than cooking.Thought I would share one more pic before I say bye..

IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO USE BABY CORN IN THE PREPARATION OF PULAO. I LIKE THE VARIETY AS IT IS TASTIER AND TEMPTING LOOKS
