Baby Corn 65 Rice Recipe - Easy Baby Corn Rice

Baby Corn 65 Rice
Baby Corn Rice is my recent experiment for mittus lunchbox and it came back so clean without even a grain of rice left out and thats what I want to see everyday.I usually make baby corn pulao and she never complains but one fine morning I was lazy to do the grinding part for the pulao so thought to try this easy baby corn rice as I knew it will be a winner as baby corn 65 is her favorite.Now this has become her fav lunchbox menu.I made it very mild to suit my lil one you can adjust the masala as per your liking, check my notes for more variations.

Once when I had little leftover after packing her lunchbox I served it for amma, at once she said "So if its for your daughter you go the extra mile to try something new and delicious" I proudly said Yes its all that I have learnt from you! :) She even started teasing me by telling hubby that "we are just served a simple pulao and the lunchbox is packed with all delicacies...." hubby smiled as he already knew this ;) So the next day I made this baby corn rice again for the whole family to enjoy and that includes me as well :D

My Notes:

  • I pressure cooked both rice and baby corn together to save time in the morning while packing for lunch.As its for the little one, I usually cook until soft.But if you prefer baby corn to be more crunchy then just parboil it.
  • Don't make the batter too thick, we just need a thin coating for baby corn.
  • You can deep fry baby corn too.
  • You can even add tomato while sauting onion and add more masala powders.
  • You can even add garlic along with onions while sauteing.
  • Adjust spice level according to your liking.
  • I soaked the rice for 30 mins then pressure cooked to yield soft rice.

  1. Can I add elachi and fennel seeds as such instead of powder

    1. I would suggest adding powder as when we add fennel and elachi as whole it might come in the mouth while eating.....
