baby corn rice recipe

rice or pulao varieties are recipes that are easy to make. when you make them in the pressure cooker, you not only save time and cooking gas, but the food also is healthy to eat. no wonder, i have already shared so many pulao recipes like:

this is a slightly spicy baby corn rice recipe with a complex flavor profile. the aromatic garam masala, the spiciness of the green chilies, the slight tang of the tomatoes and the light sweetness of the baby corn – all in one dish.

i have used pressure cooker to cook the rice. you can also cook the rice in a pan or pot. i recently brought seeraga samba rice and i am using it regularly in pulao and biryani recipes. in this baby corn pulao recipe also, i have used seeraga samba rice instead of basmati rice. you can use basmati rice or even regular rice varieties for the pulao. depending on the type of rice, add 1.5 to 2 cups water while pressure cooking.
