My daughter loves any kind of vegetarian pulao. So before I slept yesterday I decided something to make for her in morning but I did not check my fridge for vegetables. When morning I got up with my night plan and opened my fridge I was hopeless. There were no vegetables inside fridge except tomatoes and baby corn. It took 5 minutes for me to rethink my plan.Again and again my heart was recalling pulao so I thought of making pulao with baby corn. So what I have done for this just check out:

Baby Corn Pulao

Preparation time: 10 minutes (Approximately)

Cooking time: 20 minutes (Approximately)

Serving: 4 persons


Basmati Rice-2 cups

Water-4 cups

Baby corn-1 cup (Cut in sliced)

Cashew Nut-10-15


Onion-2 in medium (Finely chopped)

Oil-2 tabs

Whole gram masala

Shahi Cumin seeds (Shahi jeera)-1 tsp

Green cardamom-2


Cinnamon-1 inch

Black cardamom-1

Bay leaf-1

Salt-to taste


• Wash the rice and keep aside.

• Heat oil in a pan and add shahi cumin seeds along with all whole garam masala.

• Fry these till you get nice aroma of garam masala.

• Then add cashew nut and raisins in this and fry till it turns to golden colour.

• Now add sliced baby corn in this and steer well for couple of minutes.

• Now add washed rice and fry till the rice leaves it raw smell.

• Then add 4 cups of water along with salt.

• Cook in medium flame till rice gets cooked.

• Serve with any north Indian side dish and raitha.


• If you want you can add some vegetables also in this.

• Cook with unsalted butter instead of oil, if you want, this also will give very nice taste to pulao.

• Use good quality of basmati rice. I used India Gate.

Wow, that is tempting. I love baby corns, but never cooked anything with it so far. I don't get it in my regular grocery store. Next time, I have to try some speciality store or farmer's market.
