CORN PULAO



It is so simple to prepare and very tasty too. Addition of whole kernel corn in this recipe makes it more flavorful and nutritious. You can either use fresh of frozen corn. Corn Pulao can be eaten with any hot curry or just yogurt for vegetarian version.

Using rice cooker is the best option but you can also cook them on stove top but once the water has evaporated, close the lid and continue cooking with lowest heat.
