Here I have added some green peas but this is optional. I like it because the color combination of green and yellow looks good and appealing to the eye. Also the flavors blend well with sweet, juicy corn kernels.

In this recipe, I have used fresh corn and removed the kernels. Alternately you can use frozen corn kernels as well.

This pulav is aromatic (because of the whole spices) with mild flavors. So the flavor of sweet, juicy corns stands out in it. I have already shared the slightly spicy and creamy version – sweet corn rice with coconut milk

This beautiful and colorful looking dish is perfect for kids. They would love to have it in their lunch box.

Right now corn is in season and as being corn lover, I make many different corn recipes. If you are too, check them out.
