Corn Peas Pulao Recipe

With the IPL season on and seeing us talk about chennai super kings the little one wants to know why there is no kovai super kings...haha Though I dont watch it regularly get to hear that CSK rocks and am sure will rock on!

Corn Peas Pulao Recipe

Coming to todays recipe - Corn Peas Pulao : I tried this few months back and by then I've made it twice as we all liked it very much. The crunch and sweetness in the corn with the flavourful spicy masala makes it a tasty one pot meal. Its colorful to see and tasty to eat what more do you need?! :)

Serve hot with curd or onion raita. This is a spicy pulao so curd is the best combo which I love the most.

Corn Peas Pulao Recipe
My Notes:
  • You can skip peas and even make it plain corn pulao
  • As we are adding ginger and garlic in the masala paste itself, adding ginger garlic paste is optional while tempering.
  • I always use rice : water ratio as 1: 1.5 cups - This suits well as the rice is presoaked and gives a grain seperated rice.
