Rice dishes are my go to recipes just because they are quick to make and I can pack his lunch box without doing too much work in the morning. The most important, he loves any kind of pulao-raita, mixed fried rice or any spiced vegetable rice as a lunch. So it’s win-win situation for both of us.

I always use basmati rice for making any pulao or rice dish. You can use any other or local rice variety. Just keep in mind that different types require different amount of liquid and may vary cooking time. So adjust the coconut milk/water and cooking time accordingly.

Today I am sharing sweet corn rice recipe which is little different than my usual rice dishes. While cooking the rice, coconut milk is used instead of water. This adds creamy and rich texture to the dish. I have used fresh corn cob, removed the kernels and used in the recipe. You can use canned, if so drain it well and use. You can also use frozen corn kernels too.

With all the ingredients and spices used here, it makes SO delicious corn rice. It is packed with different flavors. You won’t need anything on side. Only a bowl of it is enough. Sometimes, I do make simple and mild version of corn pulao too.

Also green chutney is added while cooking it. This chutney is made from coriander leaves, ginger, garlic and green chili.
