Corn and I are the best friends! I like corn so much that I can just eat a bowl of corn for lunch and nothing else! Here is a rice variety I usually prepare with corn.
BTW, I clicked these pictures at night with the trick I told at Anudivya’s place. I just switched off the lights in the room, clicked it using the camera’s flash. Don’t you think they came out good? I used the same trick for the pictures of Banana Bread that I posted earlier.
- Cooked Rice – 2 cups
- Corn Kernels – 1 cup
- Green Peas – 1 cup
- Chili Powder – 1 tsp
- Sambar Powder – 1 tsp
- Garam Masala – ½ tsp
- Sugar – 1 tsp
- Turmeric – ¼ tsp
- Some broken Cashews
- Juice of 1 Lemon
- Oil – 2 tbsp
- Cumin Seeds – ½ tsp
- Mustard Seeds – ½ tsp
- A handful of Cilantro
- Salt as required
Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add cumin seeds and fry a little while.
Then add the cashews and sauté till they turn brown in color. Later add corn + peas + cilantro + sambar masala + garam masala + chili powder + sugar + turmeric and fry for some time. Add a cup of water to cook the corn. Masalas can be adjusted according to individual spice levels.
When all the water gets absorbed add cooked rice + lemon juice and mix well. Adjust salt. Keep the pan on the flame for some time and stir well. Then switch off the flame and leave the pan on the stove for 5 minutes.
Finally transfer corn masala rice to a serving plate and enjoy with some curd on side.
This is my contribution to Srivalli’s “Rice Mela”.
