Corn Vegetable Pulao





One of an important point I learnt during my course of cooking is always to think how to make dishes more tastier without excessive time or effort.  As the name suggests the main ingredient is corn which is complimented with healthy veggies like Carrots and French Beans. At the end of the meal, the dish looks simply superb and once you taste it, you would feel satisfied as this takes little time to make. So, even simple meals can be tasty and tempting which is proved by this rice. We had this with palak chicken (coming up :-).

Ingredients:
2 cups Bastmati Rice
1 cup Corn kernels
1/4 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped French beans
2 Black cardamoms
2 Green cardamoms
1 " Cinnamon stick
4-5 Black pepper corns
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tbsp Cumin seeds, roasted and grounded to powder
4 tbsp Ghee
Salt to taste
4 cups Water


Method:
Wash and soak basmati rice for 30 minutes. Drain and keep it aside.Heat ghee in a kadhai, add whole spices and stir until the spices leaves aroma. Add the vegetables and fry till they are half done. Add the rice, turmeric powder and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add 4 cups of warm water, season with salt,  mix well. Boil on high flame then reduce the heat, cover and cook for 12-15 minutes. Check if the rice is cooked and the moisture is gone by gently stir the rice in a way that the bottom layer comes up. Now sprinkle the cumin powder over rice and miix well. Serve piping hot corn pulao with raita of your choice.
