          I had corn pulav/ corn pulao/ corn pilaf only 2-3 times before. In buffet and once in flight. I loved it both the times. It was very simple to look at,  yet had wonderful taste. Even Aj loved it when he has it with some dal in the flight and with aloo palak in the buffet once. So I had a thought of trying it since last year when I travelled to India, now after almost an year, now only I triedTongue. It came out very well and corn is always my boy’s favourite. So he enjoyed it. You can make this corn pulav for even your lunch box and pair it with something like dal makani, rajma masala or even palak paneer or aloo palak ~ it makes a hearty meal!


Corn pulav recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 30 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Serves: 4


Basmati rice  2 cups 
Sweet Corn, Frozen  1 cup 
Green chilli  2 
Milk (optional)  1/2 cup 
Water  2 cups 
Mint leaves  10 
Coriander leaves  2 tblsp 
Salt  as needed 


To grind

Garlic 5
Ginger A small piece
Pepper, (black, whole) 1 tsp
Cinnamon 1 small stick
Cloves 2
Cashew 5-7


To temper

Oil + ghee 3 tblsp
Bay leaves 1
Elachi 2


  1. I used frozen corn, if you are using the fresh sweet corn, first separate the kernels. Wash and keep aside. Soak the rice for at least 20 mins. Grind the items under ‘To grind’ table with little water to a smooth paste.1-corn
  2. Heat a pressure cooker with oil and temper with bay leaves and elachi followed by slit chillies. Add the ground paste and fry for 2 minutes in medium flame and let the raw smell go away.3-corn
  3. Add the corn and fry for another 2 minutes in medium flame. Add little salt for the corn. Add the milk and water, bring to boil.2-corn
  4. Add salt, mint leaves, coriander leaves and rice. When it starts boiling, check for salt and reduce the flame to lowest possible and cook for 12-15 minutes.4-corn


    • You can add onions in the recipe, I wanted to make it simple so dint add.
    • Milk gives a sweet richness, but you can replace it with coconut milk or water too.
    • If you cant reduce the flame much in your stove, you can cook this same with different water ratio. If the flame is higher, then you may need more water.So experiment with your water ratio.

We had it with Paneer butter masala Batting Eyelashes Simple superb combination !!Happy
