Baby Corn Pulao/Easy Baby Corn Pulav

This recipe has been sitting in my drafts for more than a year and finally I am posting it now. Pulaos always make a great one pot meal and they go good with any kind of raita and are much easier to prepare too.This pulao is very flavorful and the crunchy baby corns adds more taste to the rice. So, here is the recipe!


Basmati Rice - 1 cup
Water - 1.5 - 2 cups (adjust as per your soaking time and quality of the rice)
Baby Corn - 6-8 cut into small pieces
Onion - 1, cut  lengthwise
Mint leaves - 10
Corriander leaves - fistful
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp

To Temper

Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Bay leaf - 1
Cloves - 2
Cinnamon stick - 1
Oil - 2 tsps
Ghee - 1 tsp

  1. Wash the basmati rice well and soak for 15-20 mins.You have to wash the rice well before soaking. If you do the reverse process the rice grains will break and the pulav will not look good.
  2. In a pressure cooker, heat oil and ghee. Add cumin seeds and saute for few seconds. And then add the bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon and saute for few more seconds. Now, add the ginger garlic paste and fry until the raw smell goes off. Then add the onions and saute till they turn translucent. Then add.the mint leaves, chopped coriander leaves and baby corn and mix well.
  3. Then add required amount of water, salt and the soaked rice (drain the water before adding to the pressure cooker) and pressure cook for 1 whistle and simmer for 2-3 minutes and then turn off the flame. 
  4. Once the pressure gets released fluff it up with fork without breaking the rice. Enjoy with any kind of raita or gravies
