Sweet Corn Fried Rice Recipe - Easy Indian Style Fried Rice

Sweet Corn Fried Rice Recipe
Fried Rice is our family favourite......Hubby can have fried rice even daily...yes he is crazy after fried rice and his staple order in restaurants will be egg / veg fried rice. Mittu loves any fried rice so its one of the ways I sneak in all the veggies. When I pack fried rice for mittus lunchbox I skip the sauces and make it simple more with indian flavours so wanted to post this easy fried rice recipe.I usually cut all the veggies the previous night itself while watching TV so making fried rice becomes easy for me.....I don't watch serials much but this serial uyirmei on Zee Tamil has got me addicted for a while now so am regularly watching it ....apart from that I watch Office serial on and off.

Don't have any fancy sauces at home then this fried rice is apt for you to try.

Sweet Corn Fried Rice Recipe

My Notes:

  • You can even add spring onions.
  • You can also  add 2 tbsp onion while sauteing the veggies.
  • If you prefer add 1/4 tsp soya sauce.
  • Use freshly ground pepper for a great flavour.
  • Sauteing the veggies in high flame gives a nice smoky flavour and also retains its crunchiness without the raw smell.
  • I soaked basmati rice for 30 mins then pressure cooked for 1:1.5 ratio(rice:water) for 3 whistles in medium low flame.
  • Make sure to fluff the rice and spread it with little olive oil to make the grains separate.Allow it to rest atleast for 30mins.

  1. So easy to cook. Perfect for sweet corn lovers like me..

  2. Hi Sharmiss,
    I must say you are really a good cook. Even a simple dish did not loose colour and texture, for example this rice doesn't look pressure-cooked and capsicum has crisp texture. I feel like eating a lunch at your home. ;)
    Happy blogging!

  3. Can I use regular corn instead of sweet corn

  4. Hi mam ur sweet corn recipe is good plse tell me instead of soya sauce wat we can add if we skip soya sauce the taste will differ na

    1. I dont know substitutes for soya sauce, yes skipping that will sure lack fried rice taste

  5. Can I use corn rice ? It is a corn in rice form, will it affect the taste? Have tried using it?

    1. I haven't tried/tasted corn rice so not really sure of the taste.....

  6. good review. it's a very informative post. These foods are good for health. I love the food at all difficult to handle temptation.
